The tutor group is at the heart of the Crypt pastoral system.
Pupils are placed in tutor groups based on the House system which they stay in as they move up the school. The tutor group not only provides a basis for intra-school activities and competitions, but they are often the first place where pupils make new friends. The tutor group also helps deliver the extended curriculum with many groups adopting their own charity and working to raise funds for it throughout the year.
Form tutors have twice daily contact with their tutees and are responsible for registering their groups for both the morning and afternoon sessions. Ideally, tutors will stay with their groups as they progress from Y7 to Y11. This provides maximum continuity for the pupils and gives time for effective relationships to build up. The form tutor acts as mentor and advocate and, in the first instance, they are the person pupils should go to for support and guidance. Likewise, tutors are the first point of contact for parents.
