Middle School (Years 7 - 9)

At Elisabeth Murdoch College, students are grouped into a Middle School and a Senior School. Middle School includes Year 7, 8 and 9 and Senior School includes Years 10, 11 and 12. As students transition through the College they develop their chosen pathways, specialising in subjects as they progress through each year level.
