Secondary Education

From 12 to 16 years

Presentation

Boys and girls are at the stage of blossoming adolescence and therefore, they are immersed in a process of important changes, not only physical but also emotional and intellectual. Our commitment to accompaniment in all areas is the key to the development of our students.
Secondary school is a stage of growth where the school, together with the DOPP and with the participation of families, help and accompany students as long as they become responsible adults with firm beliefs. At the end of this stage, students have the necessary skills and abilities to continue their training, either by studying a baccalaureate, training cycles or entering the world of work.

Objectives

During the secondary stage in Lleó XIII we work on:

  • Strengthen their affective capacities in all areas of personality and in their relationships with the environment.
  • Develop basic skills in the use of ICT.
  • Promote entrepreneurship and self-confidence, critical sense, personal initiative and the ability to make decisions and take responsibility.
  • Understand and express oneself in one or more foreign languages in an appropriate way.

Methodology

In secondary school we work by projects where we promote learning in a transversal and autonomous way so that knowledge and different experiences are connected.

During this stage we introduce methodological changes within the classroom such as:

  • Digital whiteboards.
  • IPAD’s as a mandatory tool for pedagogical use during the 4 years of this cycle.
  • Platforms such as  Clickedu  that facilitate the search for information and the sharing of materials.
  • Methods such as  Jump Math up to 2nd year of ESO.
  • Teamwork to promote learning by competences.
  • Splitting into flexible groups such as Mathematics or English that allows each student to work according to their pace of learning and giving very good results.

We are committed to the learning of foreign languages

At this stage we continue to bet on the learning of foreign languages, a sign of identity of our school. Our linguistic project includes Catalan as the vehicular language and the treatment of the curricular languages: English, French and Spanish following the guidelines of the Department of Education. The main objective for students is to finish ESO with a good oral and written competence in all these languages.
