Vertical Tutoring & the House System

On joining Sharnbrook, students are allocated to a tutor group which is made up of around 26 students from years 7 - 11.  Form tutors have daily contact with each of their tutees and know them individually.  Tutors are skilled in easing the transition to secondary school, and they will make contact with parents of new students early in the first term to establish the parent/staff partnership we regard so highly.  We find this enables students to quickly make friends and offers them an established support network of older students who, guided by the form teacher, will offer advice and assistance to younger students. 

For students needing extra help in dealing with difficulties and issues, we have a dedicated Key Services team along with safeguarding officers to make sure that we can look after our children when they need it most.

Our sixth from students are allocated to tutor groups which comprise of both year 12 and 13 students.  In these groups, they receive bespoke guidance about post-16 higher education and employment opportunities.  Our sixth form students will guide and work with younger students in their houses at key times throughout the year.
