Welcome to Middle

Fairholme Middle School offers a stimulating and challenging curriculum for girls in Years 7, 8 and 9.

The curriculum is delivered in a supportive and caring environment designed for achieving excellence whilst smoothly transitioning from Junior to Senior School.

A strong focus on academia, where the National Curriculum has been implemented in Years 7, 8 and 9 in English, Maths, Science, History and Geography, is well supported by our Pastoral Care and Life Skills programs. As the girls embark on a curriculum that is focused on literacy and numeracy, intellectually engaging, relevant to their lives and deliberately fun, our pastoral care and life skills programs work to enhance the emotional, social and spiritual development of each girl alongside her studies.

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.
