Form V sees a step up from life with a class teacher in the Boardman building to a more independent, subject based curriculum that will see the pupils move around to different areas of the school as the timetable demands. The good practice and habits developed through Forms III & IV help the pupils prepare for this and so the move to Form V is less demanding than it seems. The Form V working day finishes at 4.30pm as in Forms III & IV.
In Form V the children are streamed in three sets for Maths, English, Science, French, Geography and History allowing the pace and content of each lesson to best match their ability.
Three nights each week are devoted to prep. Prep is given in English, Maths, Science, French, Geography, History and two subjects are set on each of these nights with approx 25mins of work to be completed in each case. The majority of pupils opt to do this in school under teacher supervision so at the end of the day all work is completed.
