Pastoral Support

In This Section

We are very proud of the pastoral care we provide for our students and we receive very positive feedback from the students. Our students feel safe at school and know where they can go to receive support or if they are unhappy or worried. Our teachers also know that students who are underachieving will receive support and intervention.

 The form tutor is the first point of contact a student has every morning, and the form tutors are managed by our Heads of Year.
