We place a very high value on enabling our pupils to develop into happy, well-rounded people who are stretched to achieve their best. Pupils are placed in mixed ability tutor groups and each subject sets pupils according to ability at an appropriate time. Setting in English, Maths and Modern Languages takes place early in Year 7. The role of tutors is important in supporting the personal, social and academic development of pupils. Tutors act as academic mentors to their tutees, analysing their working, attainment and attitude levels three times a year (often with parents) and setting appropriately challenging targets.

There is a programme for personal development learning delivered through the drama curriculum in lower school. The Personal Social and Health Education programme is delivered by a specialist team throughout the school and they are supported by tutors in tutor time. It is intended that tutors remain with their group throughout their time in school.

The oversight of the care of pupils is the responsibility of the five year leadership teams and the Deputy Head. The pastoral team maintains close liaison with educational welfare services and parents to ensure as much co-operation and support as possible. The school is open to parents at any time of the day so there are considerable opportunities for parental involvement.

We are very keen that pupils who are new to the school are well looked after. We have peer supporters who are older pupils trained to support their younger counterparts when they join the school and who stay with their tutor group throughout the first year. We are in close contact with all the feeder schools and at least one member of staff will visit each child in each school before they join us.
