Archbishop Ilsley has a Vertical Tutoring system of tutoring. Pupils are in House groups and have a tutor. House groups are named after great Catholic saints:

  • St Brigid

  • St Francis Xavier

  • St Joseph

  • St Catherine of Siena

  • St Augustine

  • St Monica

Tutors are the first point of contact should there be any pupils concerns. A head of house will have responsibility for all pupils in their family group. Tutor groups will be of mixed ages, consisting of students from year 7-11. Pupils have at least one assembly each week, Heads of House and tutors closely monitor pupils attendance as well as coordinating inter form and House competitions.
