Whatever you choose to do here you will be in a School with an ethos that will encourage and support you to work hard, where we provide first-rate teaching and exceptional pastoral care to give you every opportunity to succeed and most importantly to leave here having made life-time friends and many happy memories.
The pupils are placed in Tutor Groups by age with a Form Tutor who meets with them every morning and evening for 'tutor time'. The Form Tutor is the first point of contact for parents and will get in touch straight away if a problem has arisen.
Safeguarding and Anti-Bullying Policies
The Form Tutors are led by three Section Heads for the different age-groups, giving continuity of care during each stage of a pupil's time in the School:
- the Head of Key Stage 3 for Years 7, 8 and 9 (ages 11 to 14)
- the Head of Key Stage 4 for Years 10 and 11 (ages 14 to 16)
- the Head of Sixth Form (ages 16-18)
The Section Head, assisted by a Deputy, is responsible for pastoral and disciplinary matters for that age group and will contact parents in the event of a more serious problem. The Section Heads have weekly meetings with their Form Tutors.
The Senior Deputy Headmaster has overall responsibility to the Headmistress for pupils' welfare and discipline throughout the School. He is the School's Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL). He and the Headmistress meet weekly with the Section Heads and their Deputies.
The School has a full-time Nurse, alongside plenty of First Aid trained staff, available to deal with day to deal medical problems. There are two separate 'sick bay' rooms for unwell pupils.
