Our Learning Communities

Each Learning Community has an equal number of tutor groups which contain Year 7 to Year 11 students. Students spend 20 minutes per day with their tutor and tutor group on a range of activities including literacy and numeracy activities. Mentoring is a key tutor group activity which aims to support and challenge all students. Each Learning Community has a staff leader and there are also student leaders and sports leaders for every Community. Each Learning Community is also represented on the School Council. Our tutor groups are mixed age –vertical tutor groups. This promotes a caring system where younger and older students help and support each other, much like in a family. As part of this system the tutor groups are split into four Learning Communities – Doverow, Frocester, Haresfield and Rodborough.
