The Middle School structures the transition for your child from the excitement of entering RGS in the Lower School towards the serious business of preparing for public examinations and life after school. Thus Middle School provides a calm and safe working environment in which your child can flourish and work towards his or her academic and social potential.


The Form Tutor, under the Leadership of a Head of Year, is the key member of the pastoral team in the Middle School. Here your child will gain the confidence and skills necessary to be successful at GCSE and to make informed choices about careers and A Level study.

We realise that life for teenagers can be challenging as they enter the world of public examinations, so we offer tailored support and set individual academic targets: your child’s Tutor, Head of Year and Head of Middle School will provide guidance and encouragement in the fulfilment of these.
