Transition From Year 4

Hello and a very warm welcome to Dorchester Middle School!

This section of the website has been divided into Year Four Pupils and Year Four Parents.

Zoom Presentation to parents for children starting in Year 5

If you are reading this you are either a Year Four child who is transferring to our fabulous school in September or a parent of one. 


You are probably feeling a whole range of emotions about coming to middle school in September. It could be that one moment you are feeling really excited about your new school and then the next you are really nervous and anxious because you just don’t know what to expect.


We are hoping that this section of the website will give you an idea of what life will be like when you join us in September and to hopefully answer some of the questions you may have.


At the moment we can’t answer all your questions but we have produced this web page to focus on the things we DO know about our fantastic school.

Here are a few members of the Key Stage Two Team who will be working with you in Year Five:


Mrs Ray





Assistant Headteacher for Key Stage Two





Mrs Ettling




Assistant Pastoral Lead for Key Stage Two






Miss Easton




Key Stage Two Learning Mentor






Ms Pluck 




Head Teacher






Mrs Williams




Deputy Headteacher






You can find more about us in our Transition Booklet.


Miss Shutts




Inclusion Manager






Miss Shutts will answer any of your queries re: admissions, uniform etc.

We are in the process of finalising who the Year Five Homebase Tutors will be when you come to us in September so watch this space. As soon as we know, we’ll update this page so you can see whose class you might be in this year.

How exciting!
