Pastoral House System

We run a vertical tutoring model to continue to develop an inclusive and equitable, family ethos.

Each student will belong to a tutor group comprising of students from every year group and belong to either Cobo, Rocquaine or Vazon House.  Each student will be allocated a form tutor, who has responsibility for the registration, achievement and pastoral care of the tutor group.  The Form Tutor is the first point of contact for parents who wish to send a message to school other than the straightforward absence.

Each house group has a Head of House who oversees the progress and welfare of all students within that house.  Tutorial groups follow a pastoral curriculum geared towards developing successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens.  Students also benefit from timetabled lessons in Personal, Social, Citizenship and Health Education (PSCHE) some aspects of which are taught by the form tutor.  Sex education forms part of the programme of study for PSCHE, normally being delivered or supported by Complementary Health Educators, specialised personnel from the Education Services.
