Personal Tutor System
Each student will have a Personal Tutor who is responsible for monitoring the pastoral and academic aspects of student life. Personal Tutor groups will be organised to comprise students from all year groups in the school, where it is expected that students from higher years will provide guidance and mentoring for newcomers to the school. This provides reassurance for newcomers or younger students and also develops key leadership skills in the older students. Students will register in their personal tutor groups every morning and so have the chance to interact and become a close knit supportive group.
Able, gifted and talented pupils
Our school is a centre of excellence, and provides an environment in which individuals are respected and encouraged to reach their full potential. We place a high priority on the need to provide the best possible education for all pupils, including the more able and talented. We encourage the pursuit of excellence, through a challenging curriculum, containing a range of activities and experiences which extend the more able pupils, helping to develop their special abilities and talents, and to celebrate their achievements.
Information from parents for the able, gifted and talented register is welcomed. By working together with parents, the school aims to ensure an appropriate balance of challenge and support, which best meets the needs of the pupil.
Myddelton College uses three categories to support the more able:
