Middle School (Year 5 to 8)
Middle School is a place where students are nurtured, challenged and inspired.
Through the ages of 10-14, students experience a variety of changes in their lives including intellectual, physical, emotional and social changes. At BHCS, the Middle School is an environment where students will feel a sense of togetherness and belonging as both parents and teachers help them to navigate this stage of adolescence.
Our Middle School learning spaces are designed to be innovative and flexible. Rooms contain an array of furniture options as well as moveable wall panels, creating flexible environments for learning and teaching.
In terms of outdoor space, we have a mix of active and passive areas, including elements such as a giant chessboard, a competition sized concrete table tennis table, a six metre high climbing web, basketball ring and a rock amphitheatre.
Staffing is structured to ensure homeroom teachers take their class for a large proportion of the core subjects. This gives teachers a greater opportunity to get to know their students, which in turn allows them to offer improved pastoral care.
Alongside the core curriculum, students participate in a unique variety of subjects such as Wood Tech and Food Tech, 3D Art, Media, Environmental Studies, and other passion-based projects.
Various events run throughout the year to unite year levels including house competitions, activities, assemblies and exciting camps.
Middle School is focused on building resilience in students as they progress through the years, while preparing them academically for Senior School.
