Pastoral System

On entering the school students are placed in one of five Houses: -

  1. Chichester
  2. Drake
  3. Fortescue
  4. Kingsley
  5. Raleigh

and remain in this House throughout their time at The Park.

Tutors are members of the same House as their Tutor Group. The House system forms a major part of our Pastoral organisation. There is a Head (and Deputy Head) of each House who has overall pastoral responsibility for the organising and running of the House, under the guidance of the Acting Deputy Head (Community) Kay Sanders.

There are Inter-House competitions which run throughout the year. Each House makes regular collections for and donations to, charities of their choice. The money is collected each week by Prefects.

Each House meets once a week for a House Assembly.

Each tutor sees his/her group for one period a week for Personal, Social, Health and Economic Well Being Education. This is organised on a yearly basis with Deputy Heads of House and the co-ordinator of P.S.H.E.E.(Sue Edmonds) being responsible for co-ordinating and up-dating the Tutor Programmes, each taking responsibility for one year group:-
