Students begin to explore their sense of identity, test their boundaries, and gain an understanding of their potential and place in the world. The things learnt in Middle School can last a lifetime as students explore and discover interests that become lifelong passions.
Our highly experienced Middle School teachers and mentors understand that a balance between firm boundaries and risk-taking is necessary in adolescence.
Our specialist staff, including a Middle School Counsellor, support students at every stage of their journey.
Our St Leonard's College Middle School curriculum is informed by world leaders in pedagogy such as Harvard Graduate School of Education and University College London. We are the only Australian school invited to engage in the OECD 2030 project - The Future of Education.
Our curriculum options gradually expand as students move through Middle School, with each individual asked to make choices regarding their own academic programs.
Throughout years 7 to 9 a wide range of electives are offered, allowing students to tailor a program to their own interests and passions, and explore a wide range of subjects before they must determine a course for their final years of schooling.
The Middle School experience culminates in the year 9 Community Urban Environment (CUE) program. This experiential learning program offers pastorally led and academically informed activities to enhance students’ understanding of their local community, and to develop an appreciation of Australia’s place in the wider Asian region. Students participate in out of classroom activities designed to develop independence, initiative and teamwork, and expose students to new experiences and points of view. The CUE program ends with the Big Experience, a three-week journey to a South-East Asian country with a strong focus on service and environmental sustainability.
