The pastoral system exists to provide care, guidance and support to all pupils.
Each pupil is allocated to a tutor group which consists of approximately 25 pupils all in the same year group, under the care of a Form Tutor. The tutor group meets together at the start of every morning. The Form Tutors are supported by Year Leaders and Key Stage Leaders.

The house system compliments the pastoral structure of tutor groups and year groups.
The four houses are Bannister (yellow), Elgar (green), Newton (red), Shakespeare (blue) and pupils wear ties with stripes in the house colour.
Bannister House is named after Sir Roger Bannister, distinguished sportsman and scientist, famous for running the first sub 4 minute mile.
Elgar House is named after Sir Edward Elgar, the famous composer.
Newton House is named after Sir Isaac Newton, early English physicist and mathematician.
Shakespeare House is named after William Shakespeare, poet and playwright.
