New To The School

We like to welcome all of our new students to the school in Year 7, we are conscious that students come from a large number of different primary schools.  There is a careful induction program for students which aims to prepare them for secondary school and ensure that they have fun, enjoy learning and get into great habits early during their time at Waldegrave.  A specialist Head of Year 7 leads the students in their important first year.

We hope your daughter feels warmly welcomed into our community and is enjoying the start of her time with us. The aim underpinning all that staff do at Waldegrave is for each student to fulfil their potential. As a consequence of this, we place pastoral care as a high priority. To ensure your daughter is best catered for, both pastorally and academically, we assign your daughter a House and form class.

Pastoral care is led by a Head of Year, each Head of Year is supported by a senior member of staff.  The Head of Year teams are:

 

Senior Leader

Head of Year

KS3

Mr Goulbourne 

Y7 - Mr Greaves

 

 

Y8 - Ms Shires

 

 

Y9 - Mrs Bashford-Hynes 

KS4

Mr Sharp

Y10 - Ms Granat

 

 

Y11 - Ms Larsson

KS5

Mr Bannister

Y12 - Ms Pugh

 

 

Y13 - Mr Stavrou

In addition there is an active House system, the aims of the houses are to promote:

  • Participation: There are many ways for students to participate. For example: through leading within a House/Tutor group; collecting and logging house points, taking part in competitions or contributing to an event on sports day.
  • Responsibility: The organisation around house activities creates opportunities for students to take on responsibility. Taking responsibility builds self-confidence and develops leadership skills. Opportunities include: planning events; planning assemblies; preparing notice boards and House page on Frog; motivating others to participate; leading a team to achieve a common goal.
  • Unifying the School: The house system provides opportunities for students to work together from different tutor groups and year groups. It provides opportunities for team work and opportunities to reflect on how individuals contribute to a shared vision.

 

There are four houses named after eminent women

Franklin

(Rosalind Franklin – scientist)

Red

Eliot

(George Eliot – novelist)

Green

Seacole

(Mary Seacole – nurse)

Yellow

Pankhurst

(Emmeline Pankhurst – suffragette)

In the pastoral system, students are personally supported and guided by staff, in order to develop into a well rounded and confident young woman.
