Middle School (Year 6 - Year 8)


Burgmann Anglican School is committed to providing an educational environment that challenges and inspires each child in the intellectual, ethical, aesthetic, emotional, social and physical domains. The Middle School strives to meet individual and common needs by providing a creative and balanced curriculum which aims to produce excellence within a Christian framework.

For some time educators have noticed that young adolescents are becoming disenchanted with learning. At a time in their lives when they undergo rapid changes both physically and emotionally and when learning should be at its peak, research has shown that in many cases adolescents' learning slows or even regresses. The term 'alienated' has been used widely when talking about young adolescents and their experience with education. Several factors have been directly attributed to this alienation. Middle School is a catalyst for each student to:

  • engage in their learning;
  • be empowered in decision-making;
  • build confidence and self-esteem;
  • discover individual strengths and needs;
  • achieve success by being the best they can be.

Middle School staff work closely with both Junior School and Senior School to ensure smooth sub-school transitions for students, both pastorally and academically. Our Middle School is located at the Forde campus.
