All students are divided into four colleges when they start the school with siblings usually placed in the same college. Mentor groups are made up of students from all year groups so there is a mix of ages. There are currently around 22 students in a mentor group. This allows students to get to know both their peers as well as a range of other students. Older students are able to share their experiences of school such as going through the options process and also help younger students feel more supported around the school.

At present we have two college leaders and by September 2018 we will have four meaning that each college has its own leader. The number of mentor groups in each college will grow as the school develops.

The mentor meets their group each morning between 8.40 and 9.05.

Our mentors work with students to reflect on their learning, completing target setting and learning reviews. They are the first port of call for parents and are there to provide pastoral support for our students.
