The Lower Intermediate Level at St. Peter's Internacional School is a period of transition, which, above all, aims to maintain the standard of work carried out in the levels before. As such, our students continue to benefit from a bilingual syllabus, with a more extensive and demanding programme in the English Language, developed in articulation with the national curriculum.
The level includes a demanding syllabus, with a cohesive teaching staff and all the necessary mechanisms that promote an effective and coherent teaching method. Our syllabus is more complex in terms of the specific content and subject areas which we offer. It is enriched with the introduction of the Spanish Language and with a more extensive study plan in the English Language (link), which includes specific sessions where our students develop their oral skills, their knowledge of English Literature have the opportunity to and attend preparation classes for the University of Cambridge examinations.
In addition to the intricacy of the syllabus, it is our objective that each class take place in a positive learning environment, which is simultaneously challenging and inspiring, encouraging the notion of discovery, together with the idea of scientific precision. We promote solid relationships between students and teachers while constantly advocating the search for knowledge, moral integrity and appreciation for the arts. All this in order to help our students become more accomplished young men and women who are prepared to face the challenges of their futures.
We believe that all our pupils may achieve success. However, we are conscious of the fact that this objective may only be reached if our students' differences and idiosyncrasies are considered, if teaching strategies are adapted and defined for specific pupils. When specific difficulties are identified, strategies for recovery, reinforcement and re-education are consequently defined and implemented. These tasks are developed by the teaching staff together with the Psychology Department which elaborates evaluation reports whenever necessary, in order to enable the academic success of the child.
As such, the teaching staff works closely with all members of the school community, where each participant has a specific role in the learning process.
As we believe that preadolescence is a difficult stage in the development of a child, at St. Peter's Internacional School we accompany our students closely, making an effort to get to know them well and establish solid relationships. In this sense, each student is given a personal tutor (link) who guides pupils in their study, personal and social well-being, and helps them to contribute positively to the school environment.
