Our Middle School follows a broad and balanced curriculum with the British National Curriculum and the Programma Ministeriale as its core.
Most importantly, the whole programme enriches the student’s learning experiences and provides them, with the academic, social, linguistic and technological tools necessary for both their present and future.
The students are periodically assessed using tests as used in British schools.
Italian Literacy is taught to pupils throughout the Middle years. Their level of written and spoken Italian as well as Mathematics and other main subjects is assessed as used in Italian schools in order to guarantee an optimized understanding and preparation in both languages.
Individual sessions are provided for non-native speakers.
The students have specialist teachers for Coding (IT), P.E., Mindfulness and Music.
Each class also has the opportunity to work on Art and Science projects during the year with specialist teachers.
The staff in English Gate School are highly competent, qualified teachers with experience of teaching in the U.K. and Italy. The staff work closely together as a team to create a positive, caring but stimulating and purposeful environment for the students.
There are clear expectations and standards for the students but the emphasis is on being happy, enthusiastic, motivated and therefore successful.
Our students have the opportunity to go on educational visits, linked to the topics they study during the year. These visits include trips to art galleries, theatres and museums, making the student’s learning experience unique and unforgettable. We also have specialists providing workshops/clubs for the students.
