HIGH SCHOOL

High School Subject Choices

High School: Grades 7-9 (G.E.T) 

In the Middle School we are not restricted by onerous external exams during this phase, and are able to expose our pupils to a wide range of subjects with the emphasis on enrichment rather than a narrow focus.  While it is still necessary to ensure that certain academic basics are in place, this is the phase during which your child will discover their academic strengths and interests.  This is the time when pupils’ self-confidence, self-esteem and self-understanding are enhanced and ease of transition from primary school to high school, from child to adult, is facilitated.  During this phase, pupils are encouraged to involve themselves in as much of our extramural programme as possible.
 

High School: Grades 10-12 (F.E.T)

In the High School our focus is two-fold.  Firstly, it is imperative that our pupils obtain the best possible matriculation results they are capable of; the world we live in demands this.  To achieve this, we provide an environment where hard work and academic rigour is the norm.  Highly qualified and experienced teachers will help your child attain his or her best in an orderly but relaxed and non-threatening atmosphere.

Our second focus is to develop well-rounded young people who are able to participate fully and positively in the society in which we live.  Without this, our first focus, i.e. results, would be without purpose.  This is achieved by offering many opportunities for young people to get involved, to have a go, to discover their strengths and weaknesses and to constantly improve on these.
