We are recognised for the excellent pastoral care we provide to pupils who enjoy a warm and caring school community. We truly value and support one another, encouraging our pupils to embrace their unique strengths and potential.
Our exceptional standard of pastoral care ensures that each individual has the confidence to contribute and succeed at every stage of their school life. Pupils are supported by Mrs Jenny Muir, Assistant Head: Pastoral and Safeguarding Lead, Form Tutors, dedicated Heads of Year and Mrs Joyce our school nurse. Additionally, the pastoral team is supported by two counsellors and external agencies as necessary and appropriate.
We firmly believe in valuing pupils for who they are and not just for what they can do. Each of our pupils is encouraged and supported to achieve their academic and social potential with personal, vocational and academic guidance along the way.
Our pastoral curriculum encourages the development of these skills through PSHCE lessons, visits from external speakers, involvement in national anti-bullying and mental health campaigns as well as the opportunity to join and lead our pupil social action and wellbeing groups. As a result, pupils are afforded opportunities to develop and exercise important life skills.
