Tutor Groups

Which Tutor Group will I be in?

We have students from thirty-five different primary schools starting with us in September.  Your Tutor Group will be made up of students from different schools.

The diagram represents a tutor group of thirty students. Each colour represents a different primary school.
The largest group of students is from Buckingham Primary School.  This means that everyone from there will still only know six other students in their new tutor group. More than half of the group will only know one other person.

This year we have a number of students who won’t know anyone so we will pair these students together with someone who has similar interests. 

Our Transition team will be planning to visit most children in their primary schools, and inviting children who are from smaller primary schools to visit us here at The Buckingham School, so that they can meet up with other children from smaller schools. 

We always work with Year 6 teachers, so they can share the wealth of knowledge and experience of the children with us, so that we can build upon this when they start with us in September. 

When will I know who my Form Tutor will be?

All children will find out which Form Group and House they are in when they attend the two-day Transition days.
