A Levels alongside a BTEC provision which includes a BTEC in Performing Arts.
Detailed and accurate tracking and monitoring is underpinned by our use of the Cambridge CEM assessments programme, with pupils taking MIDYIS tests in year 7, YELLIS tests in Year 10 and ALIS tests in year 12. These tests measure developed ability – students’ underlying learning potential – rather than achievement based on the curriculum, and so form an excellent way to identify the learning profile of the pupil. Based on this, and our own knowledge of the pupil, they can produce strategies to build on strengths and target areas that may need extra support.
The College has two boarding houses; one for girls and one for the boys and it welcomes pupils from many countries and cultures. Boarding is provided on a full, weekly and flexi term with Junior and Senior boarding rates.
At Tettenhall College they believe that children learn best when they feel happy and secure.
Every child’s contribution to School life is recognised and every success is shared. The School prides itself on its pastoral care, a fact recognised by the Independent Schools Inspectorate, who rated it as excellent.
Our Assistant Head (Pastoral) co-ordinates the School’s pastoral and disciplinary frameworks, working closely with the Heads of Section and Head of Sixth Form to maintain a good standard of discipline with effective pastoral care across the School, ensuring pupils are happy and achieving their personal best.
Form Tutors, whom the children see daily, give pupils support and guidance. The Form Tutor is a person to whom a pupil can turn to for help or advice, though the pupil may also talk to the Head of Section, Head of Sixth Form or the Senior Leadership Team. Our trained nursing staff and School Counsellor are available to help with issues of health and wellbeing, and our peer-mentoring scheme means that trained Sixth Formers are able to provide a friendly ear for younger pupils who need it.
Our pupils are encouraged to have a strong sense of community and always be respectful of others.
Tettenhall is also a CReSTeD accredited school.
