Every student is assigned a tutor who provides overall academic and personal guidance to students under his or her care. Students meet regularly with their tutor both as a group and individually to discuss progress and any problems or concerns. The Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education programme is delivered in tutor groups throughout the school year.
Every student is also a member of a school house: the Romans, Normans, Vikings or Saxons. Many of the school’s social and music events and sports competitions take place within the context of the house system. They also give students the opportunity to engage in formal and informal leadership roles, work as a team and contribute to the house and school communities. Students are expected to take on leadership positions within their houses in the form of House Captains and Vice Captains.
