The Secondary School has a strong system of pastoral support. Every student belongs to a small tutor group made up of other students from the same house colour. Each tutor group has two Form Tutors who are members of the academic teaching staff. Students meet with their Tutors at the beginning of every school day. Wherever possible tutor groups will keep their Form Tutors from one year to the next.
Form Tutors will get to know their tutees very well and they will guide their students throughout the year. This is achieved in a number of ways including discussing reports, grades and subject choices with students individually, checking homework diaries, advising students over any problems they may have, meeting parents as necessary, organising a whole school assembly and leading activities in tutor time. Tutors also take the morning register and give any daily notices.
Tutors liaise daily with the Head of Campus who will assist whenever necessary with pastoral support.
