There are 3 sub-schools at KGV: Years 7-9, Years 10-11, Years 12-13 each with their own Vice Principal and Senior Head of Year. Each year level also has a Head of Year (HOY). Year 7 has two HOY’s. Students are divided into Tutor Groups based on the four houses and on their year level; Year 7, Year 8-9, Years 10-11, and Years 12-13.
The tutor is at the heart of a KGV student’s experience. Tutors know their tutees well, seeing them every day and staying with them for up to two years.
KGV sees the role of the tutor as central to the overall development of any student. Tutors are the first point of contact for the parent or student, should issues arise.
Tutors support students in ensuring wellbeing levels are monitored and students are supported in tutor time. Daily tutor check-ins, one-to-one sessions offering individual support and counselling are regular features of the student experience. Tutors also monitor the potential and progress of each student.
Tutors have a key role in knowing each member of their Tutor Group and how best to help students meet their academic expectations using data, monitoring, communicating and intervening when necessary.
