Looking after our students is our top priority. We focus on them as an individual, encouraging them to achieve their potential and explore their interests in an atmosphere where they feel supported, encouraged and appreciated. Our Pastoral Support Co-ordinator and highly qualified School Counsellor is on hand to help students whenever needed.
Heads of Section oversee the pastoral care delivered by Tutors, supporting students as necessary. As well as one-to-one support, Tutors deliver the PSHCE (personal, social, health and citizenship education) programme.
The latest inspection report concluded: "Pastoral care is excellent, and effective systems are in place to identify and respond to individual needs. Staff go out of their way to provide appropriate support in a friendly and approachable manner. Any pastoral concerns are given a high priority and are followed up by teachers."
The inspectors noted: "Pupils are friendly and self-reliant, reflecting the school's emphasis on integrity, high standards of behaviour and sound personal values. They are confident and have a sense of responsibility for the school, the environment and the local community."
Mrs Blyther, our Pastoral Co-ordinator and School Counsellor, is on hand to help girls and their parents if they require it.
