Form Systems & Teams


Middle School (Forms 4-5)
Head of Middle School: Mrs L. Forsythe

Before the end of the third year pupils will chose a selection of 9 or 10 subjects that will form their teaching timetable in Forms 4 and 5. All pupils study English, Mathematics, Science (taught as separate subjects, Biology, Chemistry and Physics by specialists in these disciplines), Religious Education and at least one of the four modern languages on offer (French, German, Russian or Spanish). Most pupils study English Literature.

Optional subjects are chosen from those already studied in Junior School or new subjects like Additional Mathematics,  Business and Communication Systems, Business Studies, Classical Civilisation, Drama, Geology, ICT, Learning for Life and Work and Physical Education. All pupils continue to have classes in music, Physical Education and Games.

 

The Form Teams for Middle School are shown below. From this you can find the name of your son’s/daughter’s Tutor. In this role he/she will be responsible for registering your child’s attendance each morning and will have an opportunity to get to know him/her in an environment which is rather different from the normal school classroom.

Over a period of time the Tutor aims to gain an overall view of his/her academic progress and social development. As a result, the Tutor should be able to offer support and advice if difficulties should arise. We recognise the value of parental support and so would wish to work closely with you when appropriate. If you have a concern about any issue or wish to pass on information about your son/daughter, the Tutor is the person you should normally contact. It is quite acceptable for you to leave a message for them through reception if you are unable to make direct contact, and they will return your call.
