Pastoral Care

“Provision for the children's well-being is excellent.  Key people enable strong relationships to be formed and children feel safe and able to share any concerns with staff.” ISI Report 2013.

Girls thrive in our school environment where courtesy, consideration and common sense are actively encouraged and behaviour is excellent. If the boundaries are ever tested, we see such situations as a learning opportunity and look for a positive outcome.

In assemblies, our teaching of Christian values and celebration of effort and achievement creates an ethos that underpins the positive and caring atmosphere of the school.

The day to day pastoral care of each girl is overseen by her Form Teacher who she sees every day. With Form sizes of usually around 16 Form Teachers are able to get to know each of their individual students very well and play a vital role in their care as well as in communicating information about the girls to other staff and to parents. 

Supervised after-school provision (called SOCS - 'Six O'clock Stay), until 6:00pm, is also available by arrangement.
