We understand how physical and emotional welfare is the essential foundation upon which learning can take place. We go further than most Schools, with pastoral care extending to every aspect of school life in order to foster students’ personal development as much as their academic progress. We are dedicated to high standards of pastoral care and have put this at the centre of our everyday operations. It is reflected in every aspect of school life, from our ethos, the environment for learning, and the way personal development is fostered in the curriculum and co-curriculum. It is apparent in the staff- student relationships, and how far students are known and treated as individuals by their teachers.
