Day pupils in Years 7 to 10 are assigned two tutors who keep checks on the pupil’s academic progress, welfare and involvement in school life. They provide the bridge between School and home and are there to reassure and guide students as they progress through the School. Pupils have the same two tutors throughout their time in Years 4 and 5, which helps to ensure continuity of care and allows tutors to get to know their tutees very well. Sixth Formers have one tutor who acts as their mentor throughout the two-year course. This tutor plays a key role in helping with applications to university and other institutions of further education.
Flexible boarding is a popular option with busy parents. Students can take advantage of the benefits of staying overnight at School, which means that parents can go away on business or on holiday safe in the knowledge that their son or daughter will be well looked after.
Our School also encourages senior students to take on a caring role, whether through the Charity Committee or sharing a lunch table with their younger peers. Charity Week is organised by members of the Sixth Form and, each year, large sums of money are raised for two charities chosen by the students.
