Middle School

The Middle School programme for 12 to 15 year olds is based on the Montessori Adolescent Programme developed in the US, and the core curriculum is developed around the South African National Curriculum. The subject syllabi are enriched to support the children through this human developmental stage.

The adolescent endures tremendous physical changes, are intellectually capable of gaining big knowledge and show new thinking capabilities. They are idealistic, with their friends supplying the emotional safety net, with whom they may take risks and to whom they are deeply committed.

This is also a time for vulnerability, awkwardness, self-consciousness and conflicting emotions.

Through this time the human is trying to form the adult – to be reliable, trustworthy, trusted and independent. 

The Middle School supports these needs of the adolescent by supplying ample opportunity to:

  • innovate,
  • create,
  • self express,
  • explore,
  • investigate,
  • work,
  • and to use their growing knowledge.

The adults who work with these teenagers are caring, respectful, intellectually strong, trusting and forgiving. – “Always treating the adolescent as if he has greater value than he shows”

Our children are encouraged to join specialised external clubs to participate in formal sports coaching and participation, such as soccer, rugby, cricket, tennis and swimming.

There is a club programme that is run internally by teachers or children. This is inclusive of cooking, gardening, woodwork, singing, beading, coding, knitting and others.
