    Scope and Sequence
    Our school’s educational programme is built around the need to provide knowledge skills and understanding arranged by subject under three areas of study. In the Middle School a wide range of subjects is taught as identifiable subject areas but there is also the continuation of the notion of personal and group inquiry in more depth. Exams are now more a focus of the programme – school exams, external national exams and international exams.

    Providing an understanding of the following areas which influence our thinking


    Providing an understanding of the skills needed for life

    • MFL( Modern Foreign Languages ) / Spanish, Turkish.
    • MATHS
    • PSHE(Personal Social Health Education)

    Providing an understanding of how we can express ourselves

    • MUSIC
    Environmental Studies

    Providing an understanding of how we can express ourselves

    Students will be taught about the skills upon which scientific enquiry depends ( how to plan and experiment ' to gather and record evidence' and to think critically about the findings that emerge), life processes and living things, materials and their properties and physical processes. They will use scientific ideas and models to explain phenomena and events' and to understand a range of familiar applications of science. They will learn how scientists gather evidence to support their ideas and be encouraged to reflect upon the positive and negative effects of scientific and technological developments on the environment.

    The history programme of study is ambitious. Students are expected to learn about significant individuals and events from early history through to the 21st century as well as key aspects of World History. They also make connections between events in history and changes in the different periods and area studied by comparing the structure of societies and economic' cultural and political developments.

    Like History this is an ambitious programme of study. Students are expected to investigate a wide range of people, places and environments around the world. They learn about geographical patterns and processes and how political' economic' social and environmental factors affect geographical issues. They carry out geographical enquiry inside and outside the classroom and are expected to identify geographical questions ' collect and analyse written and statistical evidence and develop their own opinions.

    There will be an increasing expectation of students to be innovators' discriminating and informed users of technology. In the use of the computer students will be introduced to and taught to apply more sophisticated software to become totally computer literate.

    Expressive Arts

    Providing an understanding of how we can express ourselves

    Art and Design
    The programme is intended to develop students creativity and imagination by improving their practical and critical skills and the knowledge and experience of materials ' processes and practices learned so far.

    Students are given the opportunity to deepen and extend their own musical interests and skills . An increasing understanding of musical devices ' processes and contextual influences is to become evident. Music from different times and cultures will be introduced and students will have to think critically about the nature and quality of what they hear.

    Physical Education
    This programme is intended to make students more “expert” in the skills and techniques they have learned in primary school. Alongside games and sports, health education and leadership skills are developed.

    Life Skills

    The curriculum focuses on speaking fluently and appropriately in different contexts including more formal, where they are encouraged to use vocabulary structures and grammar of Standard English. They will read a reasonably wide range of classical and contemporary literature and encouraged to think about how we use different types of language to achieve particular effects. Discussion of literature will often involve consideration of social and moral issues . They will be taught how to write prose that is grammatically correct, carefully punctuated and accurately spelled.

    Building on the foundation laid in Primary School, students will extend calculating skills to fractions percentages and decimals. They will begin to use algebraic techniques and symbols and be taught to how to use simple equations. They will progress from a simple understanding of the features of shape and space to using definitions and reasoning to understanding geometrical objects. They will study handling data through practical activities and be introduced to a quantitative approach to probability.

    Modern Foreign languages
    Students will become familiar with the sound systems written form and grammar of at least two foreign languages. They will read a range of information, practice situational conversation and learn about the culture of the languages being taught.

    Personal Development 
    Sensitivity is given to areas related to students who are now entering puberty . Responsibility is given for a variety of school routines and time is given to discuss and develop learning styles and study skills and organisation for effective study.

    Grades 5-6 : To encourage an understanding of world citizenship the programme includes studies of world institutions, politics and issues as well as human rights and career choices.

    Grades 7-8 : The content of Global Perspectives now focuses on appreciation of art forms – theatre, cinema, architecture, visual arts, music .

    In Grade 8 Students are able to have Cambridge Checkpoint Assessments in the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. This gives an indicator of how they will perform two years later in the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education ( IGCSE ).
