Pastoral Care

At Rhyddings the pastoral care is at the heart of a pupils journey. Each pupil in year 7 starts with a dedicated form tutor, they will be assigned to a committed Year Leader who will share their personal and educational journey for five years. Each pupil will celebrate the identity of a continent, Asia, Europe, Africa and America with cross-curricular and interconnected year group competitions across the whole school.

A Form tutor and Year leader will be the central person for each pupil in their form and year group.
At Rhyddings we have an excellent dedicated pastoral team.

The School House system

Rhyddings uses a horizontal form system for Years 7 – 11, meaning that students are in form groups of the same ages. Every pupil is part of a House Continent system so that pupils from all year groups have an opportunity to work together, and in particular support our youngest pupils and foster a sense of belonging. Older students can apply to become Form Buddies.

In Year 11, students use form time not just for registration and for being given daily notices, but as short and frequent targeted revision sessions. Year 11 form tutors are all core subject teachers, overseen by Year 11 Progress Leader Mrs O’Loughlin. The form groups change throughout the year in order to allow students to work with teachers of the subjects they need the most assistance with at the time.
