Pastoral care

Pastoral care is at the heart of everything we do

We provide help and guidance throughout the Sixth Form, enabling students to develop self-confidence and a better understanding of their strengths s as they prepare for life beyond school.

Each student belongs to a small tutor group with a personal tutor to guide them through their academic studies as well as a pastoral leader who gives them individual support when needed.

With a school-wide focus on health and wellbeing, there is plenty of support available within our community.

Sixth Form students have a greater level of autonomy and independence but are still fully integrated within the schools, giving them a genuine sense of identity and community.

We value the impressive contributions our students make and their importance as mentors and role models to the younger pupils.

Within our community, our Sixth Formers have many opportunities to develop their own pastoral skills and leadership qualities with training given where appropriate.

For example, they can share their passion for their favourite subjects with younger pupils, lead their house, run a choir, manage a duty team, support students new into the Sixth Form or act as a peer mentor.  There are plenty of roles for our students to step into. All senior prefects are appointed in the Summer term of Year 12.
