The pastoral organisation of the school supports each student to be regarded as an individual within a ‘family’ community. In order to achieve this there are three Key Stage Leaders who work alongside Assistant Key Stage Leaders, an administrator and a team of Form Tutors.
All Tutor Groups are of mixed ability and are carefully selected to achieve a balance bearing in mind the students' previous schools and comments from their Headteachers. The Head of Key Stage 3 is responsible for this all-important transfer from primary to secondary school and the Key Stage 3 team ensures that the move is as smooth as possible.
Wherever possible a tutor will stay with their tutor group from Year 7 through to to Year 11. The transition of students from the care of the Key Stage 3 team to the Key Stage 4 team is carefully supported during Year 9.
