When students join us at Noadswood they are placed into a tutor group and become part of our house system.
Our house system is absolutely mega and we’re really proud of it. We have 4 houses: Anderwood, Deerleap, Knightwood and Wilverley. Students soon feel the pride in collecting points for their house, taking part in competitions, representing them at events and working tirelessly to win the coveted house cup.
The tutor groups are like a mini team within each year group and house. Students see their tutor every single day, with the morning tutor time sessions being carefully planned in order to deliver year group specific activities and interventions.
Tutor groups are horizontal (consisting of only students from the same year group) and are original formed in year 7 with the aid of our primary school colleagues. This ensures the balance between familiar faces and maintaining friendships whilst providing ample opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.
