Our Learning Communities

Together we can do so much


All students belong to one of our four Learning Communities: 

 Doverow                 Frocester                 Haresfield                 Rodborough


Each Learning Community has a staff leader, student leaders and sports leaders and is equally represented on the Student Council.

In turn, Learning Communities have an equal number of tutor groups containing students of mixed age groups, ranging from Year 7 to Year 11, to create vertical tutor groups.  This promotes a caring system where younger and older students support and help each other, much like in a family.

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.
