Middle School

We know that adolescence is a delicate stage which demands guidance by adept and compassionate teachers. Through the curriculum, these skilled educators challenge students to start making decisions about their own learning.

The Middle School core difference

Middle School at All Saints allows students to grow in independence and self-confidence. It provides a safety net for risk taking, decision making and the establishment of a sense of personal identity. Dedicated and enthusiastic teachers in the Middle School share a deep and genuine care for their students as individuals. They are committed professionals who see beyond limitations and focus instead on possibilities. They facilitate learning that taps into passion, interest and potential.

Two teachers, one class

Core learning is delivered by a team of two teachers in the Middle School. These core teachers cover the areas of English, Maths, Science, History and Geography. This teaming is a key point of difference at All Saints. It provides structure to support essential aspects of middle school education as well as a positive psychological environment that allows flexibility, variety and heterogeneous grouping of students. It also provides a structure to plan and deliver a curriculum that balances academic and social factors.
