Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

Balancing mind, body and Soul

We want you to achieve your academic, artistic and athletic potential. We also want you to be happy, well-adjusted and fulfilled. That's why we're there for you through every success and failure: the good times and the bad. 

 

There's always someone there to listen

We keep our Tutor Groups small, with an average of just ten girls in each. You'll have the same Form Tutor throughout the two years you're with us. They'll be your mentor, someone you'll meet with every day who'll help you excel academically and develop your talents. They'll also oversee your UCAS application and help you create a compelling personal statement. 

Friendships that last a lifetime

Our year groups are close-knit and have a real sense of identity. The friendships you forge will form an essential support network in the years to come. 

We make your health and safety our priority. 

We have two School Nurses and you can refer yourself to our Counsellor at any time. We hold classes and workshops to support your personal, social, health and economic education. Last year, our girls received advice on a host of topics ranging from coping with stress and staying safe to health issues like breast cancer and HIV. 

We take online security very seriously. We have a dedicated e-safety officer and a 'cyber-mentor' system that trains sixth formers to go into classes and talk to younger pupils about staying safe online. 

You, and your parents, can talk to us

As well as timetabled meetings during the year, your parents can speak to the Head Mistress, Assistant Head and Heads of Year whenever they have concerns. You'll find their contact details on the Parent Portal.
