INFORMATION ABOUT THE INTRODUCTION OF VERTICAL TUTORING

In September, following extensive research, school visits and discussions with staff and students from other schools, we plan to organise all students in Years 7-11 into new tutor groups which contain a balanced mix of students from each of the 5 year groups. These groups will also include, for some of the week, a number of Sixth Form students who will act as mentors for lower school students. These groups are known as ‘vertical tutor groups.’

Please read the following letter from Headteacher Mr Knowles which explains the changes:
