On joining the school girls are assigned to a small tutor group of about ten to twelve girls. They meet with their tutors on a daily basis and get to know them very well; the tutor is also the first point of contact for parents. PSHE is delivered in tutor groups. Girls remain in the same tutor groups until the VI. A girl will normally have three tutors during her time at the school, one in the Lower School (MIV-UIV), one in the Middle School (LV-VI) and one in the Senior School (VII-VIII). In the senior school new groups are organised vertically and are composed of girls from both the VII and the VIII.Each year group is over-seen by a head of year who reports to the Director of Pastoral Care.
