Junior School

General Principles

At St. Peter’s we strongly believe in a humanitarian approach. In Junior School, students are received with open arms and cherished by a united, kind, dedicated and extremely professional pedagogical team.

With a differentiated curricular array, focused on the student and his/her expectations, the school provides extremely enriching experiences, usually resulting in a direct impact on his/her learning. The student is challenged to take on an active and critical role in the Teaching-Learning process.

At the curricular level, students are encouraged to work in groups and to communicate in several languages, assuming a collaborative attitude, where digital literacy, critical spirit, divergent thinking, problem solving, creativity and analytical thinking join and work together. Pedagogical strategies to support learning and inclusion are incessantly designed, in order to meet the educational needs of each student and their behavioural profile.

At the school, a multicultural ethos of kindness and mutual respect, sport, art and the specific knowledge of the various disciplinary areas are a constant presence in a context, and in permanent adaptation to current pedagogical models, without losing our deep connection to studies and classical culture.

The English language acquires particular relevance along this teaching curriculum, assuming an extensive and rigorous programme, articulating itself organically with the learning embodied in the national curriculum.

Practical real life situations are created so that oral and written communication is highlighted to provide students with the necessary skills for fluent and effective communication. Specific work sessions on English literature are also included as well as preparation for the Cambridge University international certification exams.
