The College has a long tradition of commitment to pastoral care and places great emphasis on the moral and social welfare and the development of our pupils.
Through our pastoral care, we nurture all aspects of our pupils’ intellectual, physical, mental and cultural needs by creating a safe, supportive, and caring environment. This enables them to thrive and realise their full potential.
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 Pastoral and Form System. A school nurse is on site to assist with pupils’ medical issues.
Approximately 55 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 our young people
Show interest in their progress
Offer guidance and encouragement
Build a sense of community within the College
Methody has provided me with a home away from home. Being at Methody means I’ve always been surrounded with a warm community of pupils and staff, who are encouraging, empowering and kind. I’m very grateful for the memories I have made here and how they have shaped me into who I am. The college has encouraged me to work towards my goals with perseverance and passion and without Methody, I would not be the person I am today.
