Year 9 is distinctly defined at QEH, being between the Lower and Middle School and offering boys unique challenges and opportunities.
Experienced staff guide Year 9s in the transition from Year 8 to GCSE, helping them to flourish, knowing that physically and emotionally they develop at different rates. Some boys will battle with adolescence much earlier than others and you may notice that your son seems less communicative as the year goes on. Others remain immature in their outlook and may struggle with the serious choices facing them in the Spring term. Friendship groups may also change which is unsettling for some, particularly as they enter new form groups. Pastoral care remains the priority with the change from three forms to four being a positive social and academic experience.
