Middle School Curriculum

Year 9 marks an interesting stage in your son’s education, as he prepares to make the transition to GCSE studies. Boys join Wetherby Senior’s Middle School in Year 9 (13+ entry), meaning this cohort is comprised of around 50 pupils moving up from Year 8 and around the same number joining externally.

Welcome to Middle School

Hear more from our Assistant Head: Head of Middle School on academic studies, wellbeing, and co-curricular opportunities within Years 9, 10 and 11 at Wetherby Senior.

Joining Wetherby Senior’s Middle School

Our dedicated Middle School team (which includes our Head of Middle School, two Assistant Heads of Middle School and form tutors) help all our Year 9 boys settle in. We also start our Autumn Term with an induction morning, where our Year 9 cohort get to know their new tutor and others in their form. This helps boys entering via our 13+ entry point to familiarise themselves with our two School buildings. We also schedule a Year 9 residential trip in early September, helping your son to make friends and feel part of our Middle School.

Our Middle School curriculum

Our dynamic Middle School curriculum is taught by subject specialists. We appreciate that preparation for GCSE studies can seem daunting, so our staff provide a structured programme of support for decision making around options. This will help your son reflect on his strengths and select GCSE subjects that he is passionate about.

Below, you can hear more from our Head of Maths, our Head of English and Head of Music about study and life in their departments at Wetherby Senior.
