Hunters Hill Care Team staff work within Hunters Hill staff team and have principle responsibility of the residential element of the school. However duty rotas are designed to ensure that members of the team are on duty throughout the school day to support the pupils in their classroom environment.
The Care Team have a variety of roles which include identified members being Child Protection Designated Persons, PRIME trainers and take responsibility for the administration of pupils in care.
Due to flexibility of the team's shifts they are able to complete home / school liaison work with parents and carers to ensure a consistent approach in the education of pupils, imperative work which Hunters Hill College take extremely seriously to support the success of all our pupils.
There are 5 homes at Hunters Hill of which every student it assigned. Cropwood is the home for KS4 students and Shackleton, Raleigh, Scott and Frobisher are homes for KS3 students.
When you arrive in Raleigh you are always greeted with a smile and a Hello! Students are always treated with respect and dignity. They are given the opportunity to express themselves in a safe environment to help them grow into independent young people. The environment is a caring one where the students work towards targets to gain skills for life. This is achieved through a nurturing and fun atmosphere where raising individual self-esteem and expectations are the forefront of everything on offer in the home.
