Development Programmes 

We want our Middle School students to aspire to excellence in every area of their lives so we offer a unique development programme for the wider skills they will need to be happy and successful adults, called A2B (Aspire to Be).

Our blend of global perspectives, careers, personal and social education, thinking skills, well-being and study skills ensure that our students grow up to be:

  • Global citizens who understand their place in the world and how they can contribute to society 
  • Happy, well-adjusted individuals who enjoy healthy relationships
  • Successful in the workplace, life-long learners who thrive on a challenge

Public Speaking Lessons 

Public Speaking lessons in Middle School encourage the development of strong communication skills in all students and have the added benefit of shining a light on young people who would not ordinarily put themselves forward. The aim is to get as many pupils performing as possible so that they gain the confidence and the life skills that come with standing up in front of an audience.
