Pastoral Care

During the school day the care of each young person is in the hands of the class teacher for primary pupils and the group tutor for secondary pupils. These teachers are the pupils’ main pastoral link. Pupils are also supported in their learning and personal care by a skilled team of Teaching Assistants. In the residential wing each pupil has an identified member of the residential management team who looks after pastoral needs. This member of staff links with an identified member of the teaching staff to ensure appropriate links between the day and residential section of the school.


Parents are welcome to discuss any problem with their child's class teacher or group tutor or a member of the residential management team. Usually this will be at school but should you want us to visit you at home, we will be happy to do so.


Jenny Bone, the Principal has overall responsibility for pupils’ pastoral care and welcomes contact with you. Each phase is led by a phase leader who is also a Vice Principal. These are:


Primary Head of School Helen Jarvis
