The Middle School is the largest section of the school and comprises Year 9 to Year 11.

Through excellent Pastoral Care, clear guidance and a true focus on the individual, pupils in the Middle School are fully supported in achieving their potential, both academically and personally. 

At the centre of the excellent support each pupil receives is the Form Tutor. The Form Tutor is very much the ‘parent at school’, monitoring all aspects of a pupil’s progress and is the first point of contact for both the pupil and parent. Each year group has a Head of Year who oversees the daily achievements of each cohort and follows the year group through the Middle School, allowing for continuity and the ability to provide the personalised support so vital to success during these years. The Head of Middle School has oversight of the whole journey, ensuring that the needs of all pupils are met as they travel through this exciting time in their lives. This network of support is key to enabling every pupil to be celebrated.

During these years, pupils have a number of vital choices to make. Alongside the daily support and advice given by Form Tutors and delivered through the tailor-made PSHE Education curriculum, pupils also receive one to one options and careers advice allowing them to make informed decisions about the future and to be confident in approaching the next phase of their educational journey.
