On entering the school, each student is usually placed in a house group and an associated ‘vertical’ tutor group composed of students in Year 7 – 10. Each tutor group contains trained Year 9/10 peer mentors who help and support the younger students. The Form Tutor works in close conjunction with the Head of House and the Student Support Team to promote the welfare of all students and provide the guidance and security which enables them to make the most of their schooling.
Form Tutors are supported by a dedicated and talented team of student support staff who employ a range of techniques to monitor the progress of individual students to ensure academic and personal success. We recognise that any student may face barriers to their learning at some time and student support staff work closely with children and their parents to identify and address any difficulties that may arise.
