Vertical Tutoring

Our tutor system moved to year group classes in 2020-21 academic year due to the requirement to ‘bubble’ pupils.

  • Every child has a lead tutor who sees their tutor group daily
  • Every child has an academic tutorial with their parents or carers and their tutor at important points in the year to help review learning and set targets for improvement
  • Every child and their parents or carers have the opportunity to meet subject teachers for individual consultations at subject teacher evenings, as well as being able to communicate with subject teachers and faculty leaders by class charts and email.
  • Every child is placed in one of our five houses, ‘schools within schools’, with Heads of House who are able to support them to be the best learners and highest achievers possible.
