The Middle School at King Henry VIII College includes Years 7 - 9, with Years 10 and above being titled the Senior School. This covers the move from the Junior School through to the Sixth Form.

Pupils will build on what they have learnt in the Junior School, or be guided if they join the school during these years, to become self-assured students. They will be ready for their examinations, but also capable of thinking for themselves - adaptable learners, with skills that will see them into the Sixth Form and beyond.

In Years 7 to 9 pupils will continue with a modified version of Key Stage 3 of the UK National Curriculum, studying a wide range of subjects in the following areas of learning: linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technological, human and social, physical, and aesthetic and creative.

In the first part of the Senior School (Years 10 – 11) the core of the curriculum will be Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) IGCSE’s, and pupils will sit these internationally-recognised examinations at the end of Year 11.
