Educationally, children have emerged from the directed learning environment of primary school, and are starting to think differently and in a more abstract, independent, way. Socially and emotionally, they are developing their own sense of self: no longer little children, but with many steps still to take on their journey to adulthood.
Recognising this, as a leader in the education of early adolescent students, TAS in 2000, established Middle School, a distinct academic and residential precinct for students in Years 6-8. A rich, challenging and stimulating curriculum is designed to generate an enthusiasm for life-long learning, in a way that excites and engages 11-14 year olds boys and girls. At the centre of our academic program is the view that English, Mathematics and Science, as core subjects, require prioritised teaching time and that all Middle School staff, regardless of their subject specialty, are teachers of the skills necessary to successful reading and comprehension skills so that each student is literate in all academic disciplines.
