Pastoral Care & Well-being
We recognise that our students wish to achieve the highest academic standards, but we believe this happens when they are happy and healthy. That is why our teaching philosophy ensures that our teachers and staff support every student through the good and challenging times.
The School’s approach to pastoral support is to not only care for the emotional, physical and mental needs of students but to nurture human qualities and to create a community and the conditions in which they can bloom and blossom: qualities like kindness, forgiveness, honesty, tolerance and understanding.
To do this we work together as a team to ensure students have a joyful learning experience and develop a sense of purpose. Whether in the Boarding House or in the classroom, every student is treated as an individual with individual needs.
Form Tutors and House Tutors get to know each student and help them to develop into confident adults ready to play an active and positive role within the school. They acquire knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future.
