Form VIII (Age 12-13)

This is very much the “icing on the cake”.  All the hard work through previous years comes to fruition as pupils complete their final written exams for Common Entrance or Scholarship and for many there are additional awards in Art, Music, Drama and Sport to aim for. Once exams are over, Form VIII pupils move onto a “post exam” programme designed to offer them alternative challenges and help them prepare for the move to their next school.


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.
