SECONDARY SCHOOL EXPERIENCE UNDER FULL SUBJECT-BASED BANDING

Students spend one-third of their time in mixed form classes, taking common curriculum subjects together

Hannah will spend the rest of her time with classmates taking subjects at the same subject level. This allows her to interact with peers with different strengths and interests.

Students can offer subjects at appropriate subject levels

At appropriate junctures, Tim can offer certain subjects at a more demanding level, based on his interest and learning progress in these subjects.
