Belmont Intermediate School
School Introduction

Belmont Intermediate School is situated on Auckland's North Shore, with extensive grounds neighboring Takapuna Grammar School. It is an innovative, high-achieving, multi-cultural middle-school.

In this supportive and safe environment, the school provides a dynamic; student-centered learning experience to support the important years for an adolescent's growth and development.

School Curriculum

Belmont Intermediate School fulfills the requirements of the National Curriculum. Students are taught mainly in homeroom classes, with specialist teaching of Technology, the Arts, Science, Japanese and Mandarin. In the homerooms, students are taught English, Mathematics, Physical Health and Wellbeing. Where appropriate, some of these are combined into integrated unit studies. The school recognises students don’t all learn at the same pace so they offer extension programmes in Mathematics, Science, Sports, the Arts and Technology.

The school core competencies stress that all students are expected to take an active part in their learning. Reflection and personal goal setting are features of the school curriculum. Teachers support this process by vigorously providing students with feedback on their performance to enable them to take the next steps in their learning.

Additionally, the school recognises the need to challenge students in all areas, to enable them to positively experience new horizons. Their extensive co-curricular programme seeks to achieve this.
