Years 7 and 8
In Oldfield boys are mainly taught together in their form groups for all their lessons.
In the Lower School, boys continue to register in form groups, but now spend rather more time in sets.
Each form group has its own Form Tutor – the first point of contact for parents should any question about their son’s progress or welfare arises.
Senior Sixth Form prefects are assigned to each form in the first three years – the prefects act as mentors and guides.

Years 9, 10 and 11
Boys enter the Upper School in Year 9 where they will decide their GCSE choices. Boys register with their Form Tutor in form groups. They will often have the same person as tutor for their two years in the Upper School. Almost all their work is now done in subject groups and sets. Most boys take nine GCSE subjects.

Lower and Upper Sixth Forms
In the Sixth Form, Tutors are responsible for separate groups of Lower and Upper Sixth students. Boys often have the same tutor for the two years of the Sixth Form.
Boys register and do essential tutorial work in these groups. However, they now do all their work in subject groups. Most take four AS subjects in the Lower Sixth year and complete three full A-Levels in the Upper Sixth.
