Personal Tutors

The Secondary form tutor performs a vital role at BSL. Tutors provide a source of support to their tutees for both pastoral and academic issues. The role of the tutor is vital to the efficient running of the school including communication with students, successful pastoral care and the delivery of the PSHE (The Personal, Social and Health Education) programme. A tutor's role is central in both caring for students and, crucially, monitoring their progress both academically and socially; encouraging involvement, commitment, and high standards of work and behaviour. The tutor is active in looking after the interests of the 'whole child.' Each secondary year group at BSL has been assigned two tutors to enable more individual care and attention.

The form tutor should be the first person to whom a student will turn to for help or advice, although it may sometimes be necessary to refer the matter to the Head of Secondary, Head of Boarding, School Counsellor or Deputy Head.
