The Junior Diploma helps girls take full advantage of all the opportunities on offer, by providing a wealth of ways to develop their skills, aptitudes and enthusiasms. It helps them integrate the various aspects of school life and focuses on key areas: knowledge, learning skills, personal attributes and community.
With advice and guidance from their personal tutor, the girls compile a portfolio that charts their progress through the Junior Diploma, bringing together the threads of academic study, personal growth and their relationships with others. They are asked to reflect on the learning process both in writing and in a summative interview with a senior member of staff at the end of the year. We help them to understand how to assess their own development at this important time in their lives.
