All pupils are a member of a tutor group and these vary in size from six to ten pupils depending upon age and stage of development. This approach embraces our vision through accommodating a broad range of age, ability and individual need. Some students are taught in discrete tutor groups to enable full-time specialist support for those requiring it.


Pastoral Leads support our young people and dedicate their time to developing and maintaining positive working relationships with students. Weekly Pastoral team meetings provide important opportunities to:

  • Improve Communication
  • Enable sharing / gathering of student information
  • Discuss specific student issues and agree support strategies
  • Promote a consistent, proactive approach to managing behaviours

If additional input is required, pastoral teams work in partnership with the school’s discrete teams to support our young people.
