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.
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.
