At the heart of our actions at school lies a very clear principle – we want all the children in our care to be successful, now and in the future. We have fantastic students, supportive parents and a staff who work exceptionally hard for the students in their care, going the extra mile for each and every one of them.
Improving standards of achievement is a key priority for all schools and our research shows that there is no better vehicle for students to develop their leadership skills than a house system which includes “vertical” tutor groups. The school already has many features of a vertical house system, such as paired reading buddies, prefects and befrienders in place. We would like to develop the impact of these structures and invigorate our existing house system by introducing ‘vertical tutor groups from September 2013.
