The Age of Becoming

Discover more about our high school learning spaces where Grade 7 – 12 students can explore the concept of learning naturally, allowing them to develop skills to thrive in the modern world.

Many conventional and traditional schooling systems stifle children’s love of learning. By the time students reach high school, schooling is seen as something to be endured, rather than somewhere in which to thrive.

Our Constructivist model of learning empowers students to be engaged contributors in their daily learning.

At Broadacres Academy, teachers always remind students, “You may not be able to do it, yet!” We believe that students will all eventually understand and become proficient in the necessary skills, especially those that speak to their passions. We always encourage our students to maintain their love of learning and be confident in themselves.

High School Grades

The high school offers Grades 7, to 10 with Grade 11 phasing in from 2024. The first Grade 12 NSC matric class will write examinations in 2025, under the auspices of the IEB.

The High School campus accommodates the Grades 7 – 9 students in a Senior Phase learning environment, and the Grade 10 – 12 students in a FET learning environment. The High School is on the new campus, situated 3kms from the existing Preschool and Preparatory campus, just off Cedar Road via Spencer Road.

The Senior and FET phase learning communities move strategically towards more specialised learning, and this structure allows the students to collaborate within their phases and focus on their strengths, to discover what drives their interests and passions.

By the time they reach the FET phase, students would need to have a good understanding of how they learn and know what subjects they want to take to Grade 12, where they will undertake the National Senior Certificate examinations.

We believe that learning is a journey of exploration,

A collaboration between learner and teacher,
Inspired by curiosity,

Guided by professional insight and commitment,

Grounded in community values,

And focused on the natural development of each child’s potential.

Equip your child with the skills and confidence to thrive in the modern world by building on their innate love of learning and discovery.

Communal Learning Area

Our high school learning environment houses incredible learning spaces known as Communal Learning Areas (CLAs). We have indoor CLAs and outdoor CLAs. These are multi-faceted spaces where students can be creative through art, design and technology. They can use their time in these spaces to build on their learning through research and work on projects using technology. They can also consolidate the skills developed in the classroom, under the guidance of a skilled educator.

The purpose of creating such learning spaces is to integrate and enhance the learning experience beyond the confines of the classroom.

Broadacres Academy is a Microsoft school and uses Microsoft Teams. Students are given the opportunity to collaborate and communicate with teachers as well as peers in an easy, accessible way. In the high school students are required to bring their own devices (with minimal specs suggested).

Technology is used to enhance the student learning experience in certain classrooms, creating students who are actively engaged with the content being taught. Gamification is one of the tools used to turn boring tasks such as learning to type faster, into a competitive, fun activity.

We offer a digital literacy programme to help students from pre-primary school into high school, to develop the skills required to be good digital citizens and purpose-driven contributors.

Students are taught to make full use of technology by finding and evaluating information, as well as creating and sharing digital content (for example creating a digital magazine by collaborating, researching, and creating the content and then sharing the magazine with parents and teachers). Students create presentations using various programmes and applications. They are encouraged to present their work in innovative ways such as creating movies or podcasts.

Collaborative learning spaces with various seating areas are available where students can explore technology as well as collaborate while engaging in project-based learning.

The students explore coding and robotics by using Scratch, Python in Pieces and Lego Spike Prime.

At Broadacres Academy, we endeavour to use technology as a tool to enable students to become creative, innovative, critical thinkers equipped with the skills and knowledge to effectively navigate the changing world of digital technology.
