In the 9s and 10s, pupils’ independence and resilience continues to grow through an increasing range of opportunities and experiences.

Middle School pupils find themselves navigating their way from lesson to lesson between the different faculty buildings, with a different specialist subject teacher for each subject. Children enjoy an increased level of responsibility and develop more efficient personal organisation skills. Many more opportunities emerge in Middle School including the option to take part in the school’s popular Saturday Enrichment Programme and activities such as fencing, debating, music tech, performance car design, bushcraft and survival skills, Young Farmers and elite sports training. Pupils may choose to audition for the school’s highly successful Senior Choir or take part in a number of our extensive drama and musical theatre productions. Exciting residential trips to places such as Rome, Iceland and Borneo are available and plenty more besides.

From the 9s, children are supported by a Personal Tutor, who will continue to oversee their academic progress and pastoral care until they leave at the end of Top Year. The Personal Tutor is the go-to person for any academic or pastoral concerns, and the main contact point for parents and other teaching staff. A weekly PT group meeting is a chance to catch up and discuss all aspects of school life, as well as an opportunity to make connections and friendships with children from other year groups.
