Our pupils’ wellbeing is at the forefront of all that we aim to achieve. Happy pupils who feel safe and confident in their school will go on to be most successful. As such The Reach Free School offers a supportive pastoral programme which will enable all pupils to enjoy their learning.
In Year 7, pupils learn in ‘home rooms’. These are classrooms where students learn the core of their education including English, Mathematics, Humanities and Languages lessons. These modern and flexible learning spaces help to support the often daunting transition to secondary school by replicating the feel of a primary school classroom. Pupils move around the buildings to specialist spaces for lessons such as Science and Food & Nutrition, easing them into life at secondary school.
In addition, as well as a subject specialist teacher for each lesson, Year 7 Form Tutors are present throughout the day in the home room to help pupils and assist the teacher. This initiative enables teaching and learning to be personalised to each pupil and ensures that every child feels supported both academically and pastorally.
Outside of the classroom, The Reach Free School offers a range of practical, physical and exciting activities. From sports matches to a visit to TV studios, from trips abroad to inter-school competitions, The Reach Free School facilitates a whole host of new and fulfilling opportunities for your child to enjoy, enhancing their experiences beyond the curriculum.
