Each class has a form tutor. In Years 3 & 4, the tutor delivers a significant share of the timetable. From Year 5, children move around the school more to be taught by subject specialists for every lesson. The form tutor is the first port of call for any enquiry and a key part of our pastoral system.
Distinctively, there are no after school clubs. Instead these are embedded into Monday and Thursday afternoons, giving a better and longer time-slot for a range of over 60 activities, from bushcraft, trampolining and sailing to Russian, sign-language and cookery. These enable us to find something for every child to hang their hat on: the confidence they enjoy here spreads into every area of school life. Equally importantly, they are fun! This injection of variety into the timetable boosts energy levels across the board. For those who choose sporting options (eg. Cross-country, horse-riding, football, martial arts…) it enables them to do Games every day.
