Tutor Groups and Houses

Every student is allocated a Tutor Group and Tutor which, as far as possible, will stay the same throughout their five years at Haygrove.  Each year’s group of Tutors are led by a Head of Year. This gives our students continuity throughout their time at school, and enables tutors to get to know each individual and support and encourage them through their secondary school career.

The School Day includes 20 minutes of Tutorial time, where students spend time together and with their Tutor. Tutorial time contributes to Personal, Health and Social Education (PHSE) and character education by helping to promote the skills and knowledge necessary for students grow in confidence and make the most of their abilities.

The daily tutor periods are also used for checking:

  • Student planners
  • Homework
  • Attendance and punctuality
  • Uniform
  • The application of the school's Code of Responsibility and Classroom Expectations

The House System

We have a complementary House System that enables students across the 11-16 age range to engage in house events and competitions, peer support and fundraising activities. There are four distinct ‘Houses’ and each will include students from every school year and all Tutor Groups.

Each House is led by a boy and girl House Captain and Deputy House Captain, chosen from the Year 11 cohort. The House Captains are supported by representatives from each House in each year group.

Haygrove Houses

Our four House names were inspired by the explorers and adventurers who have conquered the earth’s highest peak, Mount Everest in the Himalayas.

Mallory  – George Mallory was an English mountaineer who took part in the first three British expeditions to Mount Everest in the early 1920s.

"I  was the only girl from my primary school in my Tutor Group which made me nervous at first, but as soon as I made new friends I was fine."
