The Intermediate Department
Our intermediate students enjoy the best of both worlds - a dedicated Year 7 and 8 environment and all the benefits of a well-resourced secondary school.
Students can enter the school in either year. Girls who do this enjoy a seamless and confident transition into Year 9.
The Intermediate Department provides a safe and nurturing setting where girls gain a sound education and establish good study habits. Three combined Year 7 and 8 home rooms have their own class teachers for Reading, Writing, English Studies, Inquiry Learning and Mathematics. Girls go to specialist teachers for Information Technology, Health, Religious Education, Physical Education, Art, Music and Drama.
Students work in flexible ability groups for Maths and English and can move between them according to progress. Student achievement is assessed through a range of recognised methods as well as the National Standards in Reading, Writing and Maths.
All intermediate students enjoy the benefits of the school secondary environment which include:
· Role models in senior students
· School House system where leaders encourage the younger girls
· Specialist teachers and facilities for Textile and Food Technology, Film Making, Japanese, French, Environmental Studies, Global Studies and Hard Material Technology.
Dedicated activities for intermediate students include:
· Musical Production
· Sporting fixtures
· National Young Leaders Day
· Speech competition
· Bi-annual camp
