Middle School

Middle School Level 6 | Level 7 | Level 8

Programme

The curriculum is designed to give as wide a range of study as possible in order to tap and develop each student’s full potential.

The emphasis at this level is to offer a broad programme which ensures the acquisition of basic skills as well as exposing the students to exciting cross-curricular experiences. The pastoral care aspect appears in a very strong but discreet manner.

The Educational Programme is broad-based. It offers a variety of well-structured experiences through:

• The Core Areas – Maltese*, English, Mathematics, and Integrated Science.
• Foreign Languages – Italian, French, German and Spanish.**
• The Humanities – History, Geography and Environmental Studies, and Religious Education/Virtue & Ethics Education.
• The Expressive Arts – Art and Design, Music and Drama.
• Physical Education and Sport.
• Personal, Social and Health Education.
• Information and Communication Technology.
• Student Skills.
* International students may opt out of this programme of study – Students who are particularly weak in English may be asked to follow English for non-English speakers during some of these lessons. Otherwise they may choose to take Spanish, French for native speakers or for non-native speakers, Italian classes for Italian native speakers or Maltese for non-Maltese speakers.

** Together with the compulsory areas of study, students are exposed to four foreign languages; French, Italian, German and Spanish in Level 6, after which they choose one which they will continue to study from Level 7 upwards.
