Fairholme Middle School is an excellent place to grow and learn. The curriculum is delivered in a supportive and caring environment and is designed to allow every opportunity for each student to seek excellence in their academic endeavours. Our Middle School has been in place for 13 years and so we are experienced in assisting students to transition from their Junior or Primary Schools and to ready them for the challenges of Fairholme Senior School.
The Middle School has high expectations for each student and there is a strong focus on achieving the best possible results. The curriculum is based on the National Curriculum but is delivered in an interesting and engaging way to ensure that every girl enjoys their learning whilst in the Middle School. Alongside these high expectations is a range of pastoral care and support measures designed to assist the girls to achieve their best whilst also developing their self-esteem, self-confidence, resilience and determination skills ensuring that each girl’s emotional, social and spiritual development occurs alongside her academic pursuits.
Further opportunities available to Middle School students include debating, maths team challenges, drama and musical productions, a vast range of sporting competitions, an annual camp boosting teamwork and morale within each year level, and volunteer service to our community. Such experiences offer moments of anticipation and exhilaration, and kickstart motivation to pursue individual and unique interests – crucially important in engaging girls of this age.
At a time when adolescent years can be challenging for many young people and particularly girls aged 11 to 14 years, the support offered by the Fairholme Middle School to each girl is invaluable and prepares them beautifully for the challenge and excitement of the Senior School.
