Middle Years Program
Welcome to the
Middle Years Program at Leighland!
We are elated that you are considering Leighland Christian School for Year 7 and 8!
During 2022, we have conducted many school tours with Year 6 students and their parents, and the resounding feedback is that parents wish they could come back and do school here!
This year, we are taking a more innovative approach to student learning, which places the student, your child, as the priority in their own learning journey, giving them more agency. We are incredibly excited to introduce our Middle Years program! A big focus will be on building on their 21st Century Skills through a variety of projects that have a real-world relevance. Students will become the drivers of their own learning; how exciting!
At the core, we provide your child with a loving Christ-centred environment in which they will feel safe and supported to learn and grow into the amazing people that God intended them to be.
There are so many incredible new things that we are doing at Leighland in 2023, so reach out to us to book a school tour today to learn more about it.
What are you waiting for? Come and join us now!

Passion & Purpose
We are committed to giving students the opportunity to discover their passions in life. By participating in a range of different and fun subject electives your child will get the chance to explore their passions and develop some really cool skills at the same time!
We believe that each person has been created for a God-given purpose. Our hope is that we can help your child discover their God-given purpose and nurture them to grow into the fullness of all the riches that is in store for them.
Each student in Years 7 to 10 next year will commence our Wellness Program. This will see them participate in a lesson each week focused on personal and mental health. This lesson will be hands-on, interactive and discussion-based so that students are sharing and listening to their peers, learning how to communicate with each other about important issues and also discovering more about who they are.
The focuses of these lessons will vary but will include things such as resilience, stress management and coping skills and emotional intelligence.
We believe that with the increase of social media and other pressures of being a teenager in today's society that this subject will be very pivotal to all students in our high school.
Maths Pathway’s learning and teaching model supports teachers to deliver personalised learning to every student, increasing growth and engagement in the classroom.
This unique program makes individualised learning practical where we focus on individual student growth in maths, not attainment levels. We believe every student is unique and so their journey of learning Maths should be too.
Students will engage in continuous differentiated assessment which will provide information for valuable feedback and targetted intervention in a rich, personalised and engaging learning environment.
Middle Years Values
Students are engaged in the school community, invested in their learning and have a personal voice and choice.
Students feel connected, supported and a sense of belonging to the school community.
Students achieve at their personal best with point of need learning where we focus on levels of growth not attainment.
