Pastoral Structure

Every student joins a Tutor Group on entering the school and remains in that Group throughout Years 7-11. During this time students have different Tutors as outlined below:

  • Year 7 Tutors : 1 year
  • Years 8 & 9 Tutors : 2 years
  • Years 10 & 11 : 2 years 

Tutors act as a key adult figure for the students and help and support their students. They offer time to discuss any problems or concerns, hold individual reviews of the students’ progress and assist them in taking increasing responsibility for themselves, for their academic work, appearance and behaviour. Heads of Year monitor the welfare and academic progress of each student in their year, lead their Year Tutor team and organise Year Group Assemblies and activities.

Parents are encouraged to contact the school if they have any concerns or problems relating to the welfare or academic progress of their child. They may ask to speak to the Tutor, Head of Year or the myself as Pastoral Deputy Headteacher.

They may ask to speak to the Tutor, Head of Year or the Assistant Headteacher (Student Progress and Welfare), Miss Harper.
