Senior School – Pastoral

Excellent pastoral care lies at the heart of our school community and we believe that pastoral well-being goes hand in glove with achieving the highest possible academic standards.  Form teachers play a central role in guiding their classes and helping with any difficulties and worries that sometimes face young people.

Our staff, supported by efficient pastoral procedures, provide extremely effective support and guidance for pupils.  Our form teachers are supported by an experienced pastoral team who lead each year group.  They are, in turn, supported by a dedicated Deputy Head (Pastoral) from the Senior Management Team.

Relationships of mutual respect are actively promoted within the school and each pupil’s views are listened to with care.  Collective responsibility is married to the needs of each individual.

Our pastoral programme encompasses our PSHCE programme as well as a programme of compulsory bonding trips for Y7-9 and the 6th Form, and an encouragement to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh scheme for Y10-11. These trips promote the benefits of taking controlled risks, the importance of team work and encourage resilience in our students.  Recent trips have included Buxton, Edale and Saint-Omer.

The personal discoveries we help our students to make about themselves, their talents and capabilities, will shape and define the rest of their lives.
