The Lower School Office is the focus of life for the boys in their first two years. The team of 10 lower school tutors are directed by the Head of Lower School (Mr D Brown) and his deputy (Mr M Brundle).

For their contact details please see the list of Lower School Tutors 2021-22.

In addition to handling all of the routine (but very important) day-to-day pastoral issues, the Lower School Office also monitors the academic progress of the boys through the analysis of report data. The office staff receive information from all aspects of the boys’ schooling, including rewards and sanctions, so that they can both support and challenge boys to do their best.

We have a webpage dedicated to new Year 7 parents which contains our handbook and other relevant letters. The webpage can be found here: https://www.bishopwordsworths.org.uk/main-school/the-school/lower-school/y7-september-2022-parent-information/ . Please check it regularly for any updates.
