Outstanding Pastoral Support at all Key Stages
We pride ourselves on providing positive and pro-active pastoral care to all students in all year groups.
KEY STAGE 3
All year 7 pupils join one of three Junior Houses – Aldrin, Armstrong or Gagarin. They stay in this house, with the same tutor and tutor group, for years 7, 8 and 9. The house system is designed to give pupils a feeling of belonging to a closely knit community. The form tutor is very important as they see pupils twice a day for registration and teach them once a week in Tutorial. They have a central role in linking with subject teachers, promoting good behaviour and tracking progress. The Head of House and Form tutors are the first points of contact for parents. The tutor has close links with the parents through tutor based parents’ evenings and the school planner. The Heads of House are:
- Aldrin – Mr Devey
- Armstrong – Mrs Anderson
- Gagarin – Miss Fleetham
At Egglescliffe the Houses are accommodated in discreet blocks which have social areas with lockers for pupils, dining rooms and study rooms. Assemblies are held in House blocks every morning and pupils eat their lunch in their House block. A variety of House activities are held during the year, strengthening the sense of identity pupils have with their House block.
KEY STAGE 4
In years 10 and 11 pupils move to the Senior Houses, Lovell and Tereshkova. In this House block they will move to a different form class and have a new form tutor for the two years. The form tutor is very important as they see pupils twice a day for registration and teach them once a week in Tutorial. They have a central role in linking with subject teachers, promoting good behaviour and tracking progress. The tutor teams in each of these Houses are experienced in guiding and supporting students through their GCSE examinations and preparing them for post-16 education or training. The Heads of House are:
- Lovell - Mr Scaife
- Tereshkova - Mrs Bell
In years 12 and 13 pupils move into the Sixth Form. Students are placed into new form groups, along with students from other schools, with a form tutor who has experience of guiding students through university application, alternative higher education routes or routes to employment.
- Head of Sixth Form - Mr Gratton
- Assistant Head of Sixth - Mr Morrison and Miss Whitaker
