The Observation Stage

    The observation stage of secondary school takes place in years 5 and 6. During this period, students deal with the transition from primary to secondary school, many of them having moved up from our own primary school. Shortened to eight years of instruction, the time spent at secondary school places particular demands on students in terms of learning and motivation. The goal of our educational work at the observation stage is to promote the best possible outcome, to support children where necessary and to challenge them where possible.
    The class community also plays an important role in this phase. In order to encourage a positive atmosphere and to give the children an opportunity to get to know each other well, a week-long class trip takes place in year 5.
