Role of the Form Tutor


The form tutor is a vital part of student’s life at Longdendale High School. Students have daily contact with their Form Tutor, this allows Tutors to monitor the progress of their students in all aspects of school life. Form Tutors are there to help and support students and are the first point of contact for parents.

Once every two weeks the form group will complete a PSHE session, these lessons are planned to help young people develop fully as individuals, as members of families, social and economic communities.
