Middle School Curriculum
Our Middle School Department encompasses the age range 11-14, and the year groups Year 7 to Year 9.

This is an exciting time, which brings increased diversity in the curriculum, greater contact with specialist teachers and resources, as well as heightened independence and responsibility.
