Seymour offers an outstanding Middle School program for Years 6–9. In this vital stage of development, the Middle School empowers girls to foster positive relationships with all members of the community and build a strong sense of self-worth and character.
The Middle School embeds the development of wellbeing in the curriculum and throughout all learning experiences to assist students to achieve both academic and personal success.
Our students have the confidence to navigate change, a positive self-image and a deep curiosity to learn more; not just about the world, but about themselves.
We encourage the girls to take ownership of their learning, to be reflective, critical and creative thinkers.
As the girls progress through the Middle School, so does their ability to self-regulate and to be their own advocates. In essence, we are teaching them the foundation skills for a lifetime of learning.
Their personal journey will be as individual and unique as they are.
