The main unit of pastoral care is the form, and the form teacher will usually be the first port of call for any concerns. The Section Head also has a close pastoral overview of the two year groups under his/her care with the Assistant Head Pastoral having responsibility for pastoral matters across the school.
There are two formal evenings per year for parents to meet the teachers but informal discussions are welcome at any time and take place on a regular basis. The Headmaster is also always available to discuss wider issues.
Written reports are sent to parents twice a year.
“Pastoral care of the pupils is excellent, due to the quality of relationships between staff and pupils, and the carefully organised systems for ensuring pupils’ well-being.”
“Pupils’ personal development is excellent. They have a strong sense of self-awareness, an interest in the world around them, and a keen sense of right and wrong.”
