To ensure the highest possible standards of pastoral care, The Whitby High School operates a House system. We believe this gives what is a large school (over 1600 students) more of a ‘family feel’. Siblings are placed in the same House and this ensures that parents and carers have familiar lines of contact should they wish to contact the school
There are five Houses: Hanover, Stuart, Tudor, Windsor and York. There are two form groups from each year group in a House (making a total of ten forms in each House).
A House Progress Manager is responsible for the overall pastoral care of the students in each House. This includes responsibility for dealing with pupil welfare issues, behavioural issues and academic progress. Each House is supported by an Assistant Progress Manager. The Assistant Progress Manager will usually be the first point of contact for Parents/Carers, as they do not teach and are more available than the House Progress Manager during the school day.
Your child will be placed in a form group. The tutor and House system act as the first points of contact in the school should you wish to discuss any matters or concerns.
