Following a review of our pastoral system we are re-organising registration and tutor groups to provide more focussed care. We are moving from our current mixed age ‘vertical’ tutor groups back to a more traditional Year based tutor group system. This will probably be the same type of registration system you experienced at school and is consistent with the system used by our other two academies, Q3 Academy Langley and Q3 Academy Tipton. We really do feel that having your child registered in a tutor group with students of the same year group has clear advantages over the previous mixed age registration.
