Students study English, Mathematics, Science, Physical Education, Health and Personal Development, HSIE, Biblical Studies, as well as gaining a preparatory experience of Music, Visual Arts, Technology and Applied Studies and Japanese Language, as required by the NSW Board of Studies. Classes are taught allowing for a variety of learning styles and ability levels in a cooperative, supportive learning environment.

Tyndale Christian School’s Middle School integrates a significant component of the English, HSIE, Biblical Studies and Personal Development, Health and Physical Education courses into its Core Studies program. These courses are taught by the Core class teacher, and allow for a holistic approach to knowledge and learning. Specialist teachers in Science, Mathematics and elective subjects ensure that the quality of teaching is not compromised in these important years.

All students have access to educational extension according to their particular interests and gifts. Students are entered into various competitions including English, Mathematics and Science competitions, creative writing and public speaking programs. The school offers enrichment opportunities in Creative Arts, with students regularly involved in performance and technical roles in Visual Arts, Music and Drama. Club Mid, an excursion based group, organises exciting outings designed to offer enrichment experiences not commonly linked to the traditional curriculum.

The Middle School ensures that students with particular learning needs are well supported, providing in-class assistance and withdrawal lessons, both in groups and individually. Homework club meets on a weekly basis to provide additional guidance and encouragement.

Middle School students participate in a regular sporting program, incorporating a range of activities from within and outside the school environment. Representative Sports Teams and carnivals give students opportunities to develop their skills in this area. An outdoor Education program, incorporating camps for all year groups, broadens the range of sporting and outdoor activities available to children.
