Student support

 

We try to ensure that each pupil is individually known and cared for by breaking down the school into smaller units. The school is administered on 'Horizontal' Year divisions. These are structured into 3 sections within the School:

  1. Lower School (Years 7, 8 and 9)
    Mr J Simmonds
  2. Upper School (Years l0 and 11)
    Mr S Ketley
  3. Sixth Form (Lower and Upper Sixth)
    Mr B Blackband

There is a Head of School for each section, a Year Head for each Year group who, with the Assistant Head of Year, leads a team of eight or nine tutors.

Support Options

We offer a variety of support options for students. We work closely with students and parents to provide support which can be specific to the individual student. All support programmes are designed to improve learning outcomes.

Transitional Support

Moving from primary school to secondary school can be hard work. There are many changes to deal with. However, we are here to help.
