Our House System
Tring School’s House system provides a wide range of opportunities for students to participate in social activities, charity work and an ever increasing number of inter-house competitions. Most of these carry points which, along with achievement points lead to an annual presentation for the winning House.
Tring School operates a vertical tutoring system and new students will be placed in mixed-age tutor groups. These groups consist of students from each of the year groups in the school. Students remain with their tutor group, usually with the same tutor, throughout their time in the school. Each tutor group is designated to one of our four Houses – Ascott, Claydon, Halton and Waddesdon, named after local stately homes. When assigned to a House in Year 7, students represent that House for the rest of their time at Tring School. Each House is supported by a Head of House who lead the team of Tutors and are responsible for the welfare and progress of the students in Years 7 – 11.
- Ascott - Mr J Sanday
- Claydon - Mrs D Young
- Halton - Miss E Gosling
- Waddesdon - Miss J Stefan
The Tutor and the Head of House are responsible for overseeing students pastoral wellbeing, behaviour and attendance. They stress the importance of excellent standards and the development of well rounded individuals and maintain close contact with parents.
Students in Years 12 and 13 form part of the Tutor and House system together with our specialist Head of Sixth Form and Student Support Manager who work specifically with our Sixth Form students, monitoring their attendance, academic progress and maintaining close contact with parents.
