There are three year eight and three year nine tutor groups. Each tutor group has a Form Tutor and a Teaching Assistant.
Tutor groups follow a tutorial programme designed to encourage students to develop a range of skills including:
- working with others
- improving their own learning and performance.
Skills for independence are further developed during residential visits to Hillview.
In years eight and nine educational visits include Warwick Castle, Bosworth Battlefield, the Thinktank Museum-Birmingham, the Houses of Parliament, Stratford upon Avon, The Brite Centre, Leicester Outdoor Pursuits Centre, the Beaumont Leys and Crown Hills City Learning Centres and various sporting events.
There are opportunities to represent Ellesmere College in the Key Stage 3 football teams (there are separate teams for boys and girls).
KS3 also have a ‘drop in’ club to support students during lunchtimes.
