Meet the Tutor Year 7
Welcome to the Brooke Weston Academy Meet the Tutor page for all parents / carers / guardians of Year 7 students. Below you will find a selection of videos from Year 7 tutors as well as details of our residential trip and Bedrock Vocabulary.
This academic year we invested in an innovative literacy improvement tool called Bedrock Vocabulary. This remote learning platform supports wider reading and engagement with cultural capital knowledge, whilst simultaneously helping students to learn new academic vocabulary. Students will study hundreds of words, whilst reading fiction and non-fiction texts regularly. They will also fill in an online vocabulary notebook to practise using this vocabulary. We hope to celebrate our students’ commitment to progress in literacy through termly awards and recognition for their time dedicated to learning new vocabulary.

Pioneer Centre Residential
Situated South West of Birmingham, in stunning countryside on the edge of the Wyre Forest, the Pioneer Centre offers Brooke Weston students a unique location and an opportunity to experience the outdoors like never before. Students will be participating is a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities. The six en-suite accommodation wings allow a number of smaller groups to remain separate, secure and individually cared for whilst enjoying Pioneers rural location and facilities. We still have a few places left with final payment dues on the 30th September. Welcoming nearly 20,000 guests each year the 25 acre Canadian themed site is a perfect opportunity for our students to bond with their tutees and tutors over this 3 day event.
Below you will find an information video from each of our Year 7 tutors.
