Tutors see their students daily and play a central role in the academic success of every student, through their daily contact with their tutor group and within the cycle of personal target setting and review sessions. The school's pastoral system is tightly linked to the Christian ethos of the school and our academic monitoring systems. This provides a robust and secure approach to the individual tracking of students' achievements during their time at the school related to a holistic view to the development of their character.
The school's tutorial programme enables students to develop study skills, social responsibility and an awareness of their place in the community, both within school, in church and beyond. Students participate in all areas of school life, from leading briefings and assemblies, to running the School Council.
Being a new school provides students with an opportunity not afforded to those in established institutions. This means that the students help us shape the school from its physical environment to our extra-curricular programme. Student feedback is a formal part of teachers' lesson planning, and reviews of the quality of our teaching and learning directly involve the voices of the students.
It is the ambition of the school to secure outstanding attendance, not only during our formal curriculum but also in our wide range of after school and out-of-hours activities.
All students will be encouraged to participate in a programme of enrichment and extra-curricular activities.
Promoting healthy eating is a priority both in the food we provide and as part of the curriculum.
