Middle Years Programme

MYP Guiding Principles
A focus on the development of the whole student;
  • The provision of a secure, safe and caring environment where students are encouraged to take risks, ask questions and critically reflect on their learning
  • The belief that educators, parents and the community work collaboratively with teachers in order to develop confident, independent learners
  • Preparing students of the 21st century to continue as lifelong learners, including an explicit approach to the teaching and learning of ATL skills such as critical thinking, personal management, information management and organisation, and academic honesty
  • An approach to teaching and learning where children have opportunities to learn subject specific concepts in authentic, real-life situations
  • A commitment to service learning and opportunities to work in and impact the local and wider community
