Transition into the Middle School

At Canterbury, we believe that a successful transition to and through the Middle School relies on information, relationships and commitment. Teachers, in the first few weeks, forge strong professional relationships with their students and are committed to success for every child in their care. The College encourages parents to maintain open and regular communication with staff in person, via the student diary, telephone and email.

The dedicated Canterbury College Middle School staff are inspiring educators and positive role models who are particularly understanding in addressing students’ diverse needs.
