Moving into the Senior School is an exciting stage in the educational journey. From the first year in Senior School, students start making choices about what they study, with GCSE options considered in the Spring term of Year 9. It is also a time where the pressure on students can be at its greatest: which is why we place importance on mindfulness and excellent pastoral support within the curriculum.
Our philosophy at Myddelton College is to inspire in our students a love of learning. We do this through our small class sizes, passionately committed staff and a broad curriculum that offers a strong core of academic subjects alongside creative and other options. This desire to learn carries our students through to successful results in exams and on to the universities and careers of their choice.
Lessons are designed to use each student’s full capabilities, and field trips are memorable visits that bring studies to life. Students are encouraged to take an active part in the classroom conversation, as well as participating in extracurricular activities. Students will undergo classes on; personal profiling, understanding their skills, and developing an individual development plan. This plan focuses on providing a platform to help students realise their full potential in entering the A Level years.
Specialist teachers and support staff inspire our students to work to the limits of their potential and prepare them for the next steps in life while learning more about themselves and developing a broad range of interests. Our diverse community celebrates kindness and ambition. Over the years ahead, our students will find many opportunities coming their way. We ask them to make the most of these; get involved, ask questions, and discover new ways to express themselves.
The first few years of Senior School will be the most exciting in a pupil’s school career. They must share their knowledge and skills. Challenge themselves and their peers daily and above all, have fun. If you would like to know more, please get in touch. We relish the opportunity to share our passion for this wonderful school.
