Year Coordinators teach a partial timetable and are therefore happy to return calls and emails in the designated Student Services time. If it urgent, please contact a Program Coordinator

They are responsible for the pastoral care of students by monitoring the academic, social and emotional progress of students in their year groups. This knowledge is then handed over to the next coordinator at the end of the two year cycle.

They provide leadership to the group, develop a student leadership body, promote effective communication and plan social events to bring the year groups together as cohesive and cooperative groups.

Our Year Coordinators encourage all students to achieve their personal best. Year Coordinators communicate with parents about any concerns with attendance, achievement or behavior so that plans can be put in place to engage the student more effectively.
