Pastoral Care


Students are placed in mixed ability tutor groups and, where possible, remain with their tutor through Years 7 to 11. Students are restructured as they move into the Sixth Form with a dedicated Sixth Form guidance team.

Each year the team of tutors is led by a Head of Year and a Pastoral Manager who are responsible for overseeing the welfare, development and achievement of their students. Assemblies are held weekly. A Senior Manager is attached to each year group. The standard format of 11 tutor groups working in two or three panels per year group. We encourage a competitive approach in all tutor and year group activities with each year viewed as a mini-school with an identity of its own.
