All students belong to a tutor group and spend time with their tutor twice a day. This person is their first point of contact for help during the school day and also for parents. In addition, each year group is managed by a Student Progress Leader.
We have very strong links with our partner primary schools and these pupils have many opportunities to visit Settlebeck and to work with our teachers in their primary schools before they join us.
We also have good links with our local sixth-form colleges, ensuring a smooth transition after Settlebeck too. Many Settlebeck students go on to become Head Boy and Girl in their sixth-forms and we are told by the receiving colleges and schools that, at 16, our students are confident, well-adjusted, well-educated young people.

In addition there are various less formal or regular groups for guitars, flutes and brass instruments, as well as individual lessons offered in a range of instruments, and singing ........... contact Mrs Brennan, Head of Music for more details.
Note: The Library/IT Room is available to do homework and private study at breaks and lunchtimes and students do have access to computers at these times. Students may do homework after school by arrangement with their tutor, their Progress Leader or a subject teacher.
Like all schools in England, Settlebeck receives an extra amount of money, called the Pupil Premium, for students who receive free school meals. This is intended to be used to help overcome any disadvantage those students may face and help them achieve their potential.
At Settlebeck we use this money to provide one-to-one support, especially for literacy, to provide in-class support, attendance and family support, and to ensure that these students have access to all the opportunities we offer, for example trips abroad, music lessons etc.
We will always work with every one of our students to ensure they can play a full part in the life of our great little school, and that they achieve everything that they are capable of, and perhaps more than they believed they could. Every student here really does matter to us.
