The Middle Schools Curriculum is developed by carefully interweaving the Chinese National Curriculum and the IB Middle Years Programme. The core subjects are taught in Chinese with others not examinable in the Chinese National Curriculum, being taught in English.
FCG Middle School develops the pupils’ knowledge, skill-base, and understanding as they progress through our Fettes Academic Learning Pathways. This learning happens in a bilingual environment with a clear aim of preparing pupils for entry into the Senior School.

The pathways ensure the transdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning in our Middle School. The balanced development of language is key in the Middle Years with a carefully designed curriculum that ensures both languages are developed almost equally.
