Welcome to Form VI.
Autumn Term 2017
From the first day of the academic year in September, the children in Form VI work very hard. They concentrate on consolidating previous learning and extending their skills to the best of their ability. Their targets are to eradicate careless mistakes, follow procedures methodically, focus and work independently and improve presentation. This is all vital preparation for the forthcoming entrance examinations – the first of which is in September!
