The House System
All students in Years 7 to 11 are divided into 4 houses; with each house being further divided into a number of form groups. Each form group contains students in Years 7 through to 11.  All enquiries about your child should be made to the Form Tutor in the first instance, and then to the House Leadership Team should further intervention be required. For more information about the house system please click here.
 
Homework and Study Support
Homework reinforces and extends classroom learning, equipping students to be independent learners as they move through their education. As students approach exam periods, the skills developed will support revision and preparation for examinations. For the full policy and timetable please click here. If a student fails to submit homework it is recorded and sanctions can be given.
 
Study Support sessions are available after school during the week. Faculties will make their own arrangements but there will also be specific sessions available for each House. This schedule will be published on the school website.
