The well being of all our students is paramount to us.
We place great emphasis on developing and maintaining positive relationships between students, staff and parents/carers. This shared commitment will facilitate maximum academic progress, excellent behaviour, respect for learning and involvement in a wide range of challenging, stimulating and worthwhile activities.
All students are placed in mixed ability tutor groups under the watchful eye and guidance of their personal tutor.
The form tutor is the key member of staff for the students in their care and will usually be the first point of contact for parents/carers and other members of staff.Form tutors are ably supported and led by a Head of Year. All our Heads of Year are non-teaching members of staff who are in the fortunate position of devoting 100% of their time to the care and welfare of our students.
Year councils and a full school council play important roles in planning for the future. These councils have been fully consulted on a number of issues, such as rewards, uniform and sanctions. Members of these councils are often used to show visitors and applicants around school and are involved in the selection procedure when new staff are appointed.
