The Communities

At the North School we believe that outstanding pastoral and academic care is key to being a successful school; we have a holistic approach ensuring that all students are well supported socially, emotionally and academically.  The Communities are at the heart of this support and when students join us they are placed in either the Essella Community or the Mabledon Community.

The Principal of Communities has oversight of both communities however each community has a Senior Pastoral Leader and two Pastoral Assistants and each year group is supported by a Learning Leader who will support students academically. Students are placed in tutor groups which vary in number due to the number of students in each year group.  Students will meet with their tutors daily and will discuss issues such as attendance, behaviour and wider social issues in addition to developing strategies for learning.

There is a healthy competition between the two Communities who work hard all year in the competition for the Community Cup, students can gain points for their Community through: Achievement, Attendance, Sport and Challenge.
