The transition from Primary to Secondary School is an exciting time in the development of a student. At St Andrews, Green Valley, our Year 7 – 9 curriculum is broad and balanced, with each subject taught by a subject specialist. Our Year 7 – 9 curriculum broadly follows the National Curriculum of England and Wales, however we interpret each subject in an international context which helps to make what we study more relevant. It also allows teachers to tailor the learning to each individual student.
Teachers of Year 7 – 9 students continue the great work done in our primary school by structuring lessons around the IB Learner Profile. Learner Profile outcomes are the driving force behind each and every classroom interaction. Students are encouraged to be: inquiring, caring, balanced, creative, open minded and reflective.
Green Valley students are given a wide variety of learning experiences which cater to different styles of learning. Each student is therefore given the best opportunity to reach their full potential. By the end of Year 9, each student has acquired the necessary knowledge and skills needed to be successful when studying IGCSE subjects in Years 10 and 11.
