The pastoral system is central to the school’s organisation and success. The aim of the pastoral system is to support students as they progress through the school, helping them develop socially, morally and academically. It aims to promote socially responsible behaviour, emotional well-being, respect for others and mutual tolerance.
Each Year Group has a Head of Year (and a Deputy) who is responsible for the coordination of policy and practice within the year group. In addition, each Year Group has a Learning Mentor who provides additional support to students in the year group either on an individual or group basis.
The Head of Year leads on all the arrangements and particular issues which affect the Year Group including pastoral care, academic progress, attendance and disciplinary matters.
