Every student belongs to a Form group with a dedicated Form Tutor. The Form Tutor is the central point of contact for every student and provides the crucial link between home and school. The Form Tutor is usually a parent's first point of contact with the school.
Students have a tutor period or an assembly from 9:00 -9:15 each day. This is an opportunity for students to engage in a range of activities with their Form group, such as; initiative-based activities focused on a particular event e.g. anti-bullying week, review their daily achievement and behaviour points via the school's behaviour management system and to engage in revision and homework tasks.
Students can also use form time to meet with subject or pastoral staff to address any issues they may encounter in their studies and arrange for the necessary strategies to be put in place to support them.
All Form Tutors are supported by Heads of Year who coordinate the pastoral care of all our students.
On admission each student joins one of the four College Houses; Aquinas, Augustine, Ignatius or Newman. Our House System provides a valuable opportunity for boys to develop friendships outside their own form and year group.
Students participate in a wide range of activities across the College and earn House Points which have both an individual and a collective importance. The system is designed to reward both academic excellence and a commitment to a range of activities that develop the whole person and reinforce the importance of service. By rewarding extension and enrichment activities (any extracurricular activity/charity work etc.), the House system acknowledges all the additional activities that students embrace during their time at the College.
