Our Trust of Schools

Tutor and Head of Year Information

Here at West Exe we have a wide range of support networks for our students to ensure they are extremely well supported both academically and pastorally on their pathway to success.

Form Tutors

The role of the tutor is central in both caring for students and, crucially, monitoring their progress both academically and pastorally. They provide key messages and set a positive tone for the day by checking and rewarding students who are properly equipped, dressed smartly and are ready to learn.

Heads of Year

The role of the Head of Year is to oversee the pastoral well-being and academic progress of the year group. Our dedicated Year Heads are all very experienced pastoral leads with a passion for ensuring students at West Exe receive a well-rounded education. Heads of Year will also monitor and support the attendance, safeguarding and extra-curricular activities of their year groups.
