Middle School

Middle School caters for boys for Year 7 (age 11) to Year 8 (age 12)

The raison d'etre of the Middle School is to make the transition from Junior to Senior School levels smooth and seamless. It offers a holistic educational programme that continues building on the foundations laid in the Junior School whilst also taking into account the boys' changing needs by supporting and promoting their physical and mental development through carefully constructed educational activities.

Students in the Middle School are at the age where they begin to aspire towards adulthood, and try very hard to "fit in" and establish themselves as individuals. As a result, boys at this particular stage of growth need lots of support to develop the necessary skills which are needed to make them truly independent and accountable for their actions.

The Middle School curriculum supports the needs and varied interests of our boys in an environment which is safe, yet not stifling, and thus allows our boys to develop a sense of independence and assertiveness.

Presently, the Middle School curriculum covers:

 Art

 Drama

 English

 Geography

 History

 ICT

 Integrated Science

 Maltese

 Mathematics

 Personal and Social Development

 Physical Education

 Religion

 Social Studies

 French/Italian/Spanish

Students' progress is carefully monitored through formative and summative assessments and ongoing communication between parents and teachers. Our boys are encouraged to achieve their highest academic potential and to assume responsibilities that will help them develop qualities which characterise the true Edwardian, such as self discipline, independence, leadership and organisation. We also cater to our International students who may not take Maltese and Religion as subjects; during these periods we provide boys with extra lessons of English.

Students are also encouraged to actively participate in a wide range of sports, creative and performing art activities as well as a host of other extra-curricular activities. Participation in national and international projects, competitions and collaboration with schools abroad helps our students develop an interest in current affairs and adds a multicultural dimension to their educational experience at St Edward's.

During the last year in the Middle School, students receive help and advice from guidance counsellors in order to choose appropriate subjects which they intend to pursue in the Senior School and at post-secondary levels.
