Bedale High School has a pastoral system that is organized into a vertical system rather than a year based system. Many schools have moved to this system and there is overwhelming evidence that it provides many benefits from allowing a more personalized involvement of the tutor in tracking and intervening in student progress to enabling the development of a really supportive ethos across the school.

Each house consists of 7 vertical Family Tutor Groups and will have about 30 students – around six from each year group. The students are together in their vertical groups only during tutor periods and a number of specified form periods throughout the year. Each house will also come together regularly for an assembly in addition to full school assemblies.
