Middle Years (7 to 9)

​In the Middle Years at Carmel College, our learners engage in learning experiences that are relevant and challenging. We recognise that students joining the Carmel College community come from a variety of primary school experiences, and so these early years of high school consist of a consolidation of their previous studies, as well as engaging in new and exciting curriculum areas.

For students transitioning into Year 7, we have a handy cheat sheet from BCE that answers some frequently asked questions:   Starting High School FAQ >>
