In a large school it is important that the students feel part of a smaller, more identifiable group. To achieve this students are organised on a year basis co-ordinated by a Year Leader and Year Manager who are assisted by an Assistant Year Leader. The year group is divided into eight tutor groups of thirty students. The form tutors work very closely with the Year Leaders who are responsible for the pastoral care of the students in the year group. This includes monitoring the student’s academic progress, the delivery of a full Learning 4 Life programme and day-to-day pastoral care.
To bring out the best in all our students it is important that we work together with parents. With this in mind parents are encouraged to contact the school and are free to see tutors, by appointment, to discuss any problems that may arise. Parents’ evenings are held regularly for parents to consult with subject teachers. Senior staff are available to help parents with any problems.
