Middle School at Glenlola Collegiate School is a place where enthusiastic and talented 14 to 16 year old pupils rise to the new challenges and opportunities that this stage of their education provides.

Coursework is an important part of the assessment GCSE work in many subjects as the marks contribute to the final GCSE grades awarded. Certain times of the year are especially busy with coursework, depending on the subjects which a pupil is taking. When she is given a coursework task, it is most important that she meets the set deadline. It is the pupil’s own responsibility to hand in the work on time. In some subjects, coursework investigations are done in class at various times. Pupils will be advised of these occasions well in advance and it is essential that they are present in class unless they are genuinely ill.

 How can you best support your child with her coursework?

  • By being aware of the tasks to be done and the times when they should be done
  • By providing a quiet place to work and by removing distractions
  • By encouraging your child to keep to deadlines.

Middle School provides many opportunities for pupils to expand interests and activities in the extensive range of extracurricular opportunities on offer.  There are also events for each individual year group which usually involve a charity goal.   Pupils are also encouraged to take part in the many House Events that take place throughout the year, with the Middle School House Dance Competition being a highlight for Years 11 and 12.
