Our Middle School:
Exploration and Discovery on Pathways to the Future
Our Middle School offers an environment that allows each learner to explore new subject areas, follow passions, acquire new abilities and develop new skills — helping them to discover new pathways and aspire to new horizons as they learn and grow.
As your child commences in our Middle School, our focus becomes helping them forge their individual path toward the brightest possible future.
Through our facilities, our learning environments and, most importantly, our staff, we offer a caring and supportive environment that allows each learner to achieve individual excellence, develop key skills for the future, and aspire to be their very best selves.
As each child navigates some of the most formative years in their educational journey, we work to ensure that each learner receives time and space to build excellent relationships with teaching staff, to access support, and to engage deeply in their daily learning, as they begin to fully explore possible future pathways.
Across our Middle School – and across our College – we are committed to ensuring that each individual learner has the fullest opportunity to become, and be, their very best self.
Each student enrolled in our Middle School enjoys and benefits from:
We deliberately limit our Middle School class sizes, ensuring that each learner receives time and space to build excellent relationships with teaching staff, to access support as they navigate the personal growth and developmental changes that occur through the Middle Years of Secondary schooling, and to engage deeply in their daily learning.
Focus on Positive Education and Wellbeing
Our focus on Positive Education and Student Wellbeing underpins our daily classroom practice, and we operate with a commitment to supporting each learner, and their family, as they make the exciting transition from Junior School into the Middle and Senior Years of their Secondary education.
Across our Middle School, our staff prioritise and support the development of each learner – not only in their academic pursuits – but holistically, as they mature into outstanding young adults.
Support for Personal Development
As our learners grow through their Middle Schooling, the development of confidence, identity and a sense of self is key to unlocking interests, talents and abilities that often help younger learners begin to set their course for the future.
To complement a broad curriculum across our Middle School, additional focus is placed on the development of key character strengths — including perseverance, resilience and self-efficacy — that support student wellbeing and encourage each student to continue their learning journey into Senior Years with confidence.
Supportive, Subject-Specialist Staff
Experts in Middle Years education, pedagogy and curriculum, our Middle School teachers continuously work to create a learning environment which offers rich subject content, differentiated learning opportunities, and high levels of student engagement — allowing each learner to access a world-class Anglican education.
Through outstanding relationships and care for each student, our teaching and learning staff offer a supportive classroom environment and encourage the pursuit of excellence for each learner.
Our Middle School Curriculum provides boundless opportunity for exploration within an environment of safety, encouragement and support.
From increased agency through subject choices and electives, to comprehensive co-curricular programs that allow each learner to broaden their horizons beyond the classroom, each of our Middle School Years offers variety and unique learning opportunities for each student.
Enhanced by full participation in our Investig8 Program, Investigator College offers our Middle School students extensive opportunities to explore and discover new talents, skills and abilities and to develop a love of learning that extends far beyond the classroom.
Our Middle School encourages students to discover new skills, explore new experiences and form a strong sense of self identity. As student agency and responsibility for their own learning increases, our teaching and learning across our Middle School is characterised by:
Broad subject offerings, with increasing ability to make study choices outside of core subject, and exercise individual agency in learning through electives.
Opportunities and encouragement to explore new areas of interest, develop new skills and engage with new activities beyond the core curriculum.
Teaching and Learning enriched and empowered by the use of technology in the clasroom through the Investigator College BYOD Program.
Regular access and use of specialised teaching and learning environments, and further opportunities to explore our world-class eco-campus at Currency Creek.
