Our pastoral system is one of our greatest strengths. It guides and supports students and their families to help them balance the rigorous academic curriculum and extra-curricular activities.Your children will be allocated a tutor who sees them every day and is responsible for their welfare and pastoral needs. They will be encouraged to seek advice and support from tutors and staff, and this environment of respect, trust and honesty will allow them to feel comfortable in overcoming challenges, free of judgment.
We have a "Listening Centre” which is available once a week, which gives our students the opportunity to talk to a fully qualified child psychologist/family counsellor.
Both the Primary and Senior School have strong student council programmes that develop leadership skills.
In the Senior School, this goes further by providing students who have with particular future ambitions, the opportunity to explore event organisation, communications and finance with the support of our staff.
We have two qualified nurses working with us, one of whom is always available between 08.45 and 15.45. They help teachers and pupils with advice and practical support, as well as dealing with minor day-to-day incidents. Our nurses monitor eyesight and hearing in some year groups.
They liaise with kitchen staff regarding dietary requirements and with teachers who may have a child in their class with particular medical needs. We also have a doctor who visits the school regularly.
