Middle School

Years 7 to Year 9

The transition from the primary years to secondary schooling is one of the most significant milestones in a student’s life. At Cornerstone, your child will be guided and assisted through this pivotal and exciting period.  We are proud of our reputation for individual excellence and pastoral care of our middle school students.

For students from Year 7 to Year 9, the Middle School journey has a strong emphasis on providing opportunities for leadership, a broad curriculum, and pastoral care tailored to young adolescents.

A focus on flexible learning underpins our approach to the development of Middle School students in the educational, social, cultural, spiritual, and physical aspects of their lives.

The thing that I most value at Cornerstone is the friendships and that I have a great Home group teacher and Core teacher.

Engaging, inquiry-based learning is emphasised through a curriculum built around ‘Big Ideas’ that enable integration of subjects, while a focus is maintained on literacy and numeracy to provide a strong foundation to build upon in Senior School.

Year 7 students specifically participate in a broad curriculum to provide an opportunity to explore specialist areas such as the Arts, Technology, Science and Physical Education. As students move to Year 8 and Year 9, they are given increasing choice in their elective subjects to best match their strengths and passions.
