Vertical tutoring is a system of organising students into tutor groups which places their academic and pastoral care at the heart of everything we do.
Students are in tutor groups of no more than 20 and each group has a mixture of students from each year group.
This allows the form tutor to get to know every student well, allows us to mentor them and monitor their academic and personal development. It promotes equal opportunities, greater parent partnership, enhanced student voice and student leadership, and encourages good citizenship.
The students and staff are divided into two communities. The communities are called Safa and Marwa. Each community has two houses; the houses in Safa are Ibrahim and Ismail, the houses in Marwa are Yaqoob and Yusuf. Within each house there are eight personal tutor groups. These names were decided by the students.
Safa and Marwa are two small mountains located in the Masjid al Haram in Makkah, Saudi Arabia between which Muslims travel back and forth seven times during the ritual pilgrimages of Hajj and Umrah.
Supporting charities is an important part of Feversham College, and giving to charity is one of the five pillars of Islam. Look at the Feversham Food Festival which raised money for various charities.
