Year 9



During this crucial year students will be guided by the Year 9 team:

Mrs Devine (Year Leader), Mrs Gallagher (Deputy Head), Miss McManus (Assistant Head), Miss Banwait (Assistant Head) and Mr Morgan (Deputy Head).

The first point of contact with the school continues to be the student’s tutor:

9.1 Ms Ivin


9.2 Mr Ison

9.3 Mrs Warde

9.4 Ms Walch


9.5 Mr Waine

9.8 Miss Harris/Mrs Geddes

9.7 Ms Mallett

9.9 Miss Newton


An excellent attendance record is important to ensure success at Caludon. We expect all students to achieve at least 96.5% attendance. Holidays during term time are not authorised.



All students attend school in full uniform. Students should wear a white shirt; clip on Caludon tie, black blazer (with Caludon badge), black trousers and plain black shoes or trainers. Some girls choose to wear a black skirt which must be knee length and not figure hugging.


The Curriculum 

All students at Caludon follow a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum.



This school uses reward points. Points are awarded for 100% attendance, outstanding progress, attainment, consistent positive attitude to learning, magic moments in and out of lessons, extra-curricular commitment, promoting Caludon values such as community service and student leadership. Praise postcards, rewards assemblies and awards evenings are also used.
