My name is Mr Fagan and along with my team of form tutors and Intervention Assistants, I would like to extend to you a really warm welcome to our House.
I have been at Smithills School for eight years teaching ICT and Business Studies. For seven of those years, I have been involved in the pastoral side of school and have learnt that our children thrive in a warm, supportive environment that employs clear boundaries whilst encouraging excellence in all endeavours.
The development of vertical tutoring at Smithills has been a very positive experience. It is a delight to see all the year groups working so closely with each other and it has been a great pleasure to see how quickly strong relationships are forged within the form groups, which we hope will last throughout your time at Smithills. I believe the fact that you will have the same form tutor throughout their education at Smithills will help foster good relationship between home and aid communication.
I believe every child matters here at Smithills and look forward to working with you in the coming years.
