All our Year Groups are divided into smaller Family Groups. Each Family Group is named using the number relating to the school year of the pupil, followed by a letter which corresponds to the spelling of ‘Barlow’, e,g 7R or 9L. Family Tutors are responsible for the initial pastoral care of their pupils and meet with them daily during Family Time. With 180 students in each Year, there are approximately 30 students in each Family Group. The older year groups also have intervention groups which provide extra support in Maths and English. Students may be moved in and out of this groups depending on their progress.
