Years 5 + 6
In Years 5 and 6 the academic and pastoral organisation changes. Each boy is allocated to a form with a Pastoral Tutor who teaches their form for one subject. In Year 5 this will be either English or Mathematics and in Year 6 either English, History or Geography. The boys have a form base in the Inky Building, but will move around the School to specialist areas for lessons and be taught by subject specialists.
The curriculum continues to be broad, with expectations increasing in terms of assessment and homework. In Year 5 boys are grouped by ability for the first time. This is based on measures of underlying ability and performance in the core subjects.
Boys will be assessed regularly through the year by means of end of unit tests in the majority of subjects.
