In 2017, St Peter’s Girls launched its new Middle School, featuring open and flexible learning spaces, enhanced views of the stunning wilderness in neighbouring Ferguson Park and new technology to stimulate young minds. Deputy Principal and Head of Middle School Richard Lisle shares why there’s never been a better time to be in Middle School at Saints Girls:
Spanning Years 7 - 9, our Middle School is an engrossing learning environment that provides for the specific academic needs of adolescent girls, as well as their expanding and developing social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual domains.
Learning becomes increasingly specialised and students are offered a broader range of subjects, preparing them for the educational pathways and choices of our Senior School.
Deputy Principal and Head of Middle School Richard Lisle is a passionate believer in the Curriculum at St Peter’s Girls, having worked at the School since 2011. He previously served as Coordinator of Gifted and Talented Education at Sydney’s Moriah College, and prior to that performed several leadership roles in the UK. Richard holds a Master of Education, postgraduate certificates in education and gifted education, and a Bachelor of Arts (History of Art).
Under his guidance, the Middle School aims to provide a sense of belonging for each student. As part of a progressively challenging outdoor education program, our girls are encouraged to connect with their peers, experience life outdoors and take controlled risks in beautiful natural settings.
Girls in Years 7 and 8 participate in the Futures Program, where they undertake a project in a specific area of interest. It enables them to devise their own learning plan, developing independence and creativity.
These pathways provide opportunities for leadership in many shapes and forms. Your daughter will be encouraged to be a responsible and caring individual who thinks globally and strives to reach her potential in everything she does. At St Peter’s Girls, we will help her develop life-long learning skills while fostering friendships and networks that become equally as enduring. Our Middle School sets our girls up for success and fulfilment as they prepare for the challenges of senior schooling.
