The Intermediate Years

At Te Raekura Redcliffs School we aim to provide the best in education for our students from Year 1 to Year 8.

At the Years 7 and 8 level of our school we have a structure and programme that has been developed to best support the needs of the emerging adolescent aged from 10 to 13 years.

Moving into our Year 7&8 enviornment becomes about spreading the focus across the curriculum and developing some key competencies around self-management, collaboration and increasing personal achioevemernt expectations.

We approach this stage of learning with a holistic view that aims to continue to develop the core curriculum areas but further engage our students through service, leadership and specialist subject areas. 

At Te Raekura Redcliffs School we provide extra funding, staffing and resources to create an environment where our Year 7 and 8 students grow and flourish in a wide range of areas, whilst being challenged and encouraged to succeed as the Seniors of Te Raekura Redcliffs School.

Year 7 and 8 programme

  • High quality teachers with strong intermediate level teaching experience and knowledge, who work in a close-knit team and know your children exceptionally well.
