Overarching the role of the Form Tutor there are members of staff who have a wider pastoral role, Heads of School and Assistant Heads of School who operate as Year Heads. They support Form Tutors and provide an overall view of their age-groups: for example, the Form Tutors will meet with the respective Heads of School/Year to review the progress of all boys at key moments in the year.
