Pastoral care

High-quality pastoral care is at the centre of our approach to education. We will treat you as an individual, seeking to develop and realise your potential.

We will support your:

  • Academic and technical achievement
  • Self-discipline, self-reliance and valuing others
  • Teamwork
  • Leadership
  • Personal commitment
  • Responsibility
  • Resilience

Support will be provided in network groups and you will have dedicated staff members responsible for your pastoral care.

Our pastoral care is flexible and adapts to the needs of each student to help empower you for the world of tomorrow. Your personal development is as important as your academic achievement, and regular communication between staff and parents will support this aim.
