Midlands Christian College provides a broad and balanced curriculum designed to meet the needs of our pupils who have varying abilities. Within this framework, one of our Expected Outcomes for our Midlands Christian College pupils is, with Christ as the centre of truth, to develop pupils who have a qualification in English, Mathematics, Science and Computing. As such, there is a planned, progressive programme to ensure that our pupils have every opportunity to achieve this goal for themselves and to the best level in accordance with their ability.
The Vice Principal oversees the teaching staff and examination coordination side of the academic programme, with the Director of Academics overseeing and tracking pupil progress. Together, they work with a well-qualified team of Subject Managers who oversee the day to day running of their subjects.
As pupils progress through the academic system, guidance is given on appropriate combinations and levels of qualifications.
