House Tutors

Each House has 11 Tutor Groups with about 12 to 15 students in each group. Each group comprises two to three students from each grade from Grade 8 to Grade 12. The students remain in the same tutor group for their school career. Grade 11 mentors and Grade 8 mentees are placed in the same tutor group and there is also an SRC representative in each tutor group. Tutor groups meet at least once a week.
