The pastoral system works to support the personal and social development and academic progress of students.
Pastoral care is organised through year-based mixed ability tutor groups which are affiliated to house groups. Year leaders, deputy year leaders and tutors are responsible for the attendance, progress, behaviour and well-being of students. Tutors generally remain with tutor groups for five years from Years 7 – 11. In Years 12 and 13, students are in mixed tutor groups.
The pastoral team are generally the first port of call for concerns about students. As a school we can access a range of support agencies, for example, we employ a full time student and family worker and a part time student counsellor.
