Year Groups, Houses and Tutors

When students start at Denbigh School in Year 7 they are placed in a Tutor Group with other students in Year 7 who are also in their House.  Students will stay in a Tutor group with other students in their Year in Years 7-11. Where possible, they remain with the same Tutor during this time. 

Students will have two Heads of Year, one for their pastoral needs and another to support them with progress at school.  Heads of Year can be found in Student Support.  Heads of Years stay with groups of students as they move through the school. 

The Tutor will be your main contact in school and can most easily be contacted via email. Tutors see students every moThe Tutor will be the main contact in school for students and their families and can most easily be contacted via email.  Tutors see students every morning at 8:30 for Tutorial sessions.

Throughout the year, the Houses compete against each other to earn House points.  There are many different activities that include sports events, quizzes, challenges and music and talent shows that students are able to get involved with.  At the end of the year, the House with the most points wins the House Cup, decorated with House coloured ribbons.
