House and Tutor Groups

For many children, the move to a large secondary school can seem daunting, even for those attending some of the larger primary schools in Ingleby Barwick. In its initial years, Ingleby Manor Free School and Sixth Form will be much smaller, allowing our students to grow and develop in a nurtured and highly personalised environment.

Part of our pastoral care involves our house system supported by vertically structured tutor groups in which older students will act as peer mentors, and activities such as charity fund-raising take place. Our focus on respect and independence is a key feature of our pastoral support programme, which involves all staff members being strong, supportive role models for each student in the school.
