At Saint George’s Church of England School we run Communities rather than a year group system. This involves vertical tutoring where every Tutor Group has students from Years 7 to 10 within it. We find this promotes a strong community and family feel allowing for easier mentoring and support of all students. Our Communities are named after Cathedrals and the colour of the shield on each students blazer badge indicates which Community they belong to. Year 11 have separate tutor group to allow them to fully prepare for their exams and to support them with post 16 choices.
Sixth form tutor groups are part of a Community and very much take part in day to day Community life.
