The Middle School caters for students in years 7-10, and will be located on the Wairoa campus at Stirling. The school will offer years 7 and 8 in 2011, extending to year 9 in 2012 and year 10 in 2013.
The students work in a multi-age and multi-level community that is flexible and separates into various groupings for individual and group tasks, and for explicit teaching sessions. Students work with a team of teachers who facilitate their learning. Total student numbers will be capped at 60, with a high staff:student ratio to enable each student to work on an individualised learning program.
