Middle School Activities
Middle School activities are designed to enhance the learning outcomes for children at this stage. Students consolidate past skills by applying their knowledge to tasks and expanding their understanding in lessons that steadily increase in difficulty. Students are well-prepared for the rigours of future learning with homework for each subject, allocated library time and excellent support from staff. Teachers encourage students to gain independence during individual, class-based activities while promoting collaboration during project and group work.
The curriculum is complemented by engaging off-campus activities, which include excursions to cultural and historical sites in Rabat, on-site science experiments, specialist classes, and workshops that may take place at school or in museums, galleries, and other areas of interest nearby.
Languages in Middle Years
Our Middle School language provision is robust and includes English, French and Arabic tuition for students in Years 7, 8 and 9. In addition to Arabic and French lessons, the main language of instruction is English, enabling students to gain confidence and fluency when reading, writing, speaking and listening. The Middle School curriculum is delivered by bilingual and multilingual teachers, many of whom have gained teaching experience or education qualifications overseas.
