The King John School is a secondary academy school with a sixth form in South Benfleet, Essex, England. The main school building was built prior to 1958: contrary to popular belief this building was never designed, nor used, as a hospital. As of January 2010, the school has an enrollment of 1861 students.[1]

School Tutors[edit]

The school has 11 tutor groups in each year, with around 30 pupils in each tutor. The tutor groups are set in a format of the year, then the number of the tutor group, for example, 7-07, 8-07, 9-07, 10-07, 11-07, the year changing as the students progress throughout the school. Each year group has a Head of Year, which is a step above the normal tutors, and organizes activities such as end of year trips, and also deals with some of the discipline, such as detentions. A similar system applies to the Sixth-Form, except each tutor group begins with VI instead of the group year, for example, VI-01, VI-02, VI-03. The tutor groups contain both students from years 12 & 13.
