Challenging our learners with a rigorous internationally recognised qualification
Over the Middle School years, we work to help develop increasing academic and social independence in our students, readying them for the rigours of Senior School.
In Middle School, your child will study a range of subjects which will give them a breadth of understanding, laying an important foundation for later success. In Years 9 and 10 they will start specialising and choose elective subjects.
Support and challenge your child in transition to secondary school
From Year 9 onwards, we help your child to further develop the discipline and high order thinking skills they need for university and careers.
In the Cambridge education, students can complete up to 13 years of schooling, which culminates in the internationally recognised Cambridge Higher School Certificate (HSC). In Years 9 and 10, students study core subjects as well as electives, in preparation for further specialisation in the Higher School Certificate, which is equivalent to the A-Levels or IB Diploma.
We provide a supportive and stimulating learning environment for all our children.
At LF’s Middle and Senior School, students will experience a challenging and holistic education where they will achieve their individual potential. Central to the Cambridge education is helping our students develop general capabilities through general and STEM subjects.
At LF, assessments are designed to help students understand their progress towards their outcomes.
Student gaps become targets for future learning and the learning cycle begins again. We assess students' achievement through assignments, research tasks, oral presentations, group work and examinations.
Good communication with your child’s class teacher is essential. Our school conducts parent-teacher conferences twice each year to discuss students' progress.
Every semester, our teachers compile a report that lets you know how your child is progressing through the outcomes for each subject, describing their strengths and weaknesses.
Checkpoint tests are external assessment tests that are marked by Cambridge examiners. The aim of checkpoint tests is to: provide a cumulative measure of performance at the end of the primary learning phase. identify students' strengths and weaknesses from the test-result analysis.
In an increasingly competitive world, we help our students understand how to stand out and navigate through the broad university and career paths options available to them with an Cambridge education.
