Staff, Tutors and Houses
The Head of Year has the main responsibility for overseeing your daughter’s education and well-being. He/she will welcome contact with you. On routine matters your first point of contact, either by telephone or email, is your daughter’s Form Tutor. We recognise that in a busy school the Tutor may not be immediately available, in which case please establish with the School Reception when he or she will be free.
Please remember that Tutors/Techers will not be available during tutor/lesson times and when undertaking break and lunch duties, therefore email is the best way to contact.
Senior staff are willing to talk to parents by appointment, please refer to the key contacts page for their details.
The Form unit remains constant throughout the first five years regardless of teaching class and option groupings in Years 10 and 11. Your daughter’s Tutor meets his/her Tutor Group on a daily basis and this time is spent reading, discussing current events and other topical activities. Through this regular contact the Tutor becomes the person who knows your daughter the most thoroughly.
Please make a note of your daughter’s Form Tutor and her Tutor Group.
The school is divided into four houses (Lambda (yellow), Kappa (blue), Sigma (red), and Gamma (green). Houses compete against each other in many areas of school life including attendance, positive behaviour points, sports competitions and charity fund raising activities.
