Dorchester Middle School

Transition from Year 6 to Year 7

Welcome to Year 7

Dear Year 7 Parents, Carers and Pupils,

Welcome to the Year 7 information page. I have been lucky enough to move up the school with the pupils as Year Lead, and we are fortunate to have the following members of staff as tutors, who can be found in the following rooms:

7IW - Room 15 with Mrs Winstanley and Miss Still 

7JMH - Room 16 with Miss Hobern

7JG - Room 17 with Mr Greetham 

7JS - Room 19 (the huts) with Mrs Slocombe 

7CE - Lab 2 with Mr Benham and Mrs Emery 


Children will eat their lunch in their tutor room except 7CE who will eat in the Hall. KS3 will play first and then come in for lunch. 

Timetable and curriculum 

Registration :  9.00 – 9.10 

L1 : 9.10 – 10.05

L2 :  10.05  – 11.00 

Break : 11.00 - 11.20 

L3 :  11.20 – 12.15

Lunch time 1.10 - 1-50 

Tutor time 1.50 – 2.20

We aim to provide a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum, taught by experts in their subjects as far as possible.  Students will move to their lessons, as though in a secondary school environment. In addition to English, maths and science, students will have the opportunity to study French or Spanish, humanities, PE and games, design technology, art and PSCHEE. Collective worship which takes the form of both year group and KS3 assemblies represent a way to develop and establish the school’s ethos and values of ROARS.


Information about the school uniform is on our school website under the Parents section, which includes information regarding current expectations (including make-up and jewellery).  The link to this section is:  Uniform | Dorchester Middle School
