Year 7 is a time for consolidation, development and preparation for Year 8. The curriculum structure at this level ensures that all students are exposed to a broad range of subjects. Students will have one teacher for English and Humanities (totaling 8 periods) and one teacher for Mathematics and Science (totaling 7 periods) so that there is a smooth transition into the secondary school environment.

Year 8 is a time for students to pursue interests, develop skills and prepare for Year 9. The curriculum structure at this level ensures that all students are exposed to the core subjects, as well as a variety of practical subjects which will prepare them for Year 9 where they will be able to choose from a range of electives.

All classes provide differentiated activities and tasks, enabling students to work at their level and to aspire to complete extension work.
