All teaching staff are involved in the whole development of every individual with whom they have contact. Day-to-day responsibility for the care of pupils is in the hands of Form Tutors. Each form is selected to reflect an academic, social and gender balance. Forms have two tutor periods per week when individual difficulties can be attended to and progress reviewed. This time is also used to cover some aspects of our programme of personal, social, health and citizenship education, building on the experiences of the residential outward-bound course undertaken in the 1st Form. The Heads of Section lead regular group meetings of Form Tutors. Any academic or pastoral issues are usually resolved at an early stage by the Form Tutor and Deputy Head of Section. More difficult matters are reviewed by the Heads of Section and, where appropriate, the Senior Deputy Head.
Parents who have concerns about their son or daughter should always make contact with the Form Tutor at School in the first instance. A call to the School Office will be returned by the Form Tutor as soon as possible. For serious concerns, requiring immediate attention, contact should be made with the relevant Head of Section.
