Pastoral Care

The College has a long tradition of commitment to pastoral care and places great emphasis on the moral and social welfare and development of our pupils as well as their intellectual, physical and cultural needs. The staff are aware of the concerns that may come from attending a large school and so everything possible is done to create a family atmosphere. 

There is a close working relationship between the academic structure of the College and the members of staff involved in pastoral care as we believe that effective pupil support is dependent on the contribution of all members of staff. There is a Vice-Principal responsible for pastoral care together with a Head of Pastoral Care and a team of teaching staff involved in the Form System. A school nurse is on site to assist with pupils’ medical issues.

Around 63 tutor groups meet each morning providing staff and pupils with the opportunity to establish a relationship which allows tutors to gauge the general welfare and demeanour of the children and young adults, to show interest in the progress, activities and achievements of individuals, to offer guidance and encouragement and to build a sense of community within the College.
