Middle Years

MIDDLE years - YEARS 7,8 & 9

In Years 7, 8 & 9, our students are supported to experience a wide range of subjects whilst starting to identify and hone their interests and abilities in particular areas. Year 9 also sees the inclusion of The Rite Journey, which is a unique formation program run within the timetable which is designed to provide a distinct and unique rite of passage experience for students as they become young men. Throughout the middle years, engagement with the learning process and the development of metacognitive processes and skills is valued.
