At Regent Independent College, whilst our focus remains on academic achievement we are aware that as teenagers, students need much support during what is undoubtedly a challenging time.
Therefore, each student joining the College is assigned a tutor. Students are expected to see their tutor each morning during tutor period which is from 8.45am to 9.00am. During this time, the tutor will ask students how they are getting on with their various subjects and escalate any issues raised and may ask to look at student books and files. This is also the time when important information such as the examination procedures are discussed and students are alerted to events in the College. There may also be discussion around daily events to make sure that students are aware of what is happening both in the UK and globally. Subject teachers may also raise concerns about a student with the tutor and the tutor may then in turn make contact with parents, or if, required, escalate the matter to the Head Teacher.
Students also attend House Group once a week. All are Houses are composed of a mixture of students from different year groups to encourage interaction between those of different ages and the Houses are named after renowned historical figures who have made a significant contribution to the development of the country in its journey to the Britain it is today. Currently our Houses include, Shakespeare House, Nightingale House, Churchill House, Newton House and Pankhurst House. Topics discussed include those such as gaming addiction, student finances, British politics or animal testing and are designed to encourage students to use logical reasoning, develop debating skills and learn to respect and appreciate the views of others.
