King Edward's School Home

An independent day school for boys aged 11 to 18

Form tutors

A boy's form is central to his school life. It is the group in which he registers and with whom he has almost all lessons in the early years. The Form Tutor will see pupils twice a day at registration and will meet them in form periods once or twice a week. He/she will also normally teach the form throughout the year.

The Form Tutor is, therefore, the most important figure in a boy's life at school and will keep the closest eye on his academic and social progress and will also deal with any matters of concern. If teachers do have any concerns they will always share them with the Form Tutor. The Form Tutor is, also, the person whom parents should approach in the first instance about any matter that concerns them. Form Tutor's e-mail addresses are made available to parents at the beginning of the academic year and this has proved to be a very effective way of communicating.
