Year 9 classes are streamed into three levels:

Top Streams (9TMA, 9MTE)

  • 9MTE extends students learning following a programme equivalent to a Y10 course

Mainstream (9MT1 and 9MT2)

  • Together with our Y10 course, the junior programme provides students with skills and foundations for taking a Level 1 course in Y11, including external and internal assessments

Jump Start (9MT3)

  • Consolidating basic skills and building foundation so that students are able to take a Y11 course focused mainly on internal assessments and unit standards
