Form Time, Continents and Assembly

All form time activities are planned to tie into the CARES values and have a focus on wellbeing and celebrating achievements. Form tutors create a culture of support within their form teams, encouraging teamwork, a caring ethos within the group and mutual respect. Our tutors build wellbeing, literacy, courage, aspiration, respect, equality and self-control for all members of the form.

Assembly Day:

Meet your form group in the playground at 8.20am, with your laptop so you can register your form. Ensure they are lined up in silence before entering the main hall.


Go through equipment checks with your form ensuring students are prepared for the week ahead, update and go through the attendance challenge and tell students how many credits that have to date. Mark D will send out an email halfway through each term an update of where students are in relation to their year.
