Springboard to High School

Exclusively for girls aged 12-13 years (Grades 7-8)

Duration: 3 months up to 2 years

Start date: September / January

Surval’s Springboard to High School is a unique, personalised programme for 12-13 year olds which will enable girls to build core academic and language skills ready to launch into their High School studies, whilst broadening their perspectives and flourishing as individuals. 

Benchmarked against Grades 7-8, the perspectives and personal development promoted through the Springboard to High School experience are as important as the subject content covered.  

Girls join the Springboard either for a year’s international experience to benefit from the significant value added that this unique programme can bring to girls at this age, or as a stepping stone to Surval’s High School programme.
