Vertical Tutor Groups


Oakgrove has a unique way of helping students support each other. Form classes are grouped across the age range of the school, so that two adults serve as tutors for a group of students made up of three students from each year group.  This allows better one-to-one support for everyone.  Support comes in all manner of ways tailored to the individual needs of our pupils including:

  • Promotion of positive attitudes and behaviours

  • Student reward systems

  • Mentoring support

  • Revision programmes

  • Careers advice and support

  • Target setting

  • Assessment to support learning

  • Transition workshops

  • Positive staff/student relationships

  • Targeted academic intervention

  • Counselling services

  • Monitoring, recording and tracking progress
