Tutor Groups

At St George, students are organised into year groups according to age, which are then divided into tutor groups. The tutor plays a vital role in the development of our students, supporting them with their well-being and achievement as well as meeting with parents at termly Mentoring Days to discuss students’ progress.

Each year group has a Progress Leader, who takes overall responsibility for the year group’s progress as well as sanctions and rewards, and a supporting member of the Senior Leadership Team. This work is complemented by the college Chaplain. Through assemblies, tutor time and regular visits to our chapel, students’ academic progress is well balanced with their development as well-rounded young adults.

Each tutor group is aligned to one of eight Houses, which are named for Saints and Martyrs. These are: Alphonsa; Bakhita; Drexel; Frassati; John-Paul; Kolbe; Romero; Teresa. While weekly assemblies are usually held as a year group, there are occasions throughout the year when House Assemblies bring together all year groups for one house at a time.
