Meet the Pastoral Team

The relationships between staff and pupils are very positive and the pupils feel well cared for.

Year 7

Mrs Williams and Mrs Oakey head up the team who work each year to ensure the smooth transition and warm welcome of our incoming Year 7 students. This starts right from the time families are notified in Year 6 that they have been allocated a place with us, through settling into the routines and rhythms of the first year at secondary school, and handing over in the summer of Year 7 to the new Heads of Year who will take the year group forwards.

The Year 7 Hub is joyfully managed by Mrs Tully.

Year 8

Moving on from Year 7 is an important step as students start to feel more established and confident, and they begin to explore in more depth the subjects they study. Mr Smith is providing the steady guidance our current Year 8 students need to make the most of their year.

The Year 8 Hub is beautifully managed by Mrs Heard.

Year 9

During Year 9, students will explore the possibilities for their Option Choices for their Key Stage 4 courses and make those important decisions; an exciting stage in their academic journeys throughout which they will benefit from the wealth of experience and support of their Head of Year, Mr Wren and Assistant Head of Year, Mrs Lockhart.

The Year 9 Hub is skilfully managed by Mrs Lawrence.

Year 10

Mrs Davis, Head of Year and Miss Adam, Assistant Head of Year are steering these Year 10 students through their critical first year of Key Stage 4 studies. This is where they will cover the larger part of the learning for their GCSE and BTEC subjects and work towards mastering the techniques and skills needed to succeed in their exams next year. They begin to consider the possibilities for their next steps "Beyond Carrington".

The Year 10 Hub is wonderfully managed by Mrs Topp.
