From the structure of the house tutorial system, to the much more informal access to the extended pastoral team or prefects, the framework of pastoral care ensures that at every step each pupil's development is monitored and fully supported. The diversity of support and care which the pupils have available means that they are treated as individuals, and can always find someone to discuss their questions or concerns.
The extended pastoral team comprises of the Deputy Head Pastoral, Deputy Head Pupils, Head of Wellbeing, Heads of House, Heads of School, Head of Boarding, tutors, boarding tutors, our Medical Team and school counsellor, who together create our enabling, supportive ethos.
Tutors combine pastoral care with detailed academic monitoring and so get to know the whole person. Their encouragement to their tutees to participate in a wide range of activities successfully engenders greater self-confidence and self-awareness. If you have a concern about your child please contact their Tutor in the first instance or the Head of House (day pupils) or Head of Boarding (boarders). For more serious issues you may wish to contact a member of the Senior Pastoral team, either the Head of Wellbeing, Deputy Head Pupils or Deputy Head Pastoral.
