Organisation and Pastoral

The pastoral organisation of the school is helped by the fact that Hanley Castle is a relatively small secondary school. It is therefore easier for each pupil to be regarded as an individual within a ‘family’ community. In order to achieve this there are three Key Stage Leaders who work alongside a team of Year Tutors in each year.

All Tutor Groups are of mixed ability and are carefully selected to achieve a balance bearing in mind the pupils' 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 she ensures 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.
