Personal Care Structure

The pastoral care dimension of the College is an expression of the concern for the development and progress of its pupils. It offers a means to reflect in practice the educational aims of the College, to integrate and give coherance to the many different aspects of a pupil's experience in the College and to enable pupils to gain maximum benefit from their time in the College.


In delivering pastoral provision;

  • Teachers adopt a positive attitude to pupils, encouraging, guiding, and treating them with respect.
  • Pupils are accepted as individuals as worth and important members of the school community
  • Pupils follow a meaningful Personal Development Programme which cultivates the growth of responsibility, develops self confidence and engenders self discipline.
  • A 'Buddy System' is operated when our Year 8 pupils are assigned to a 'buddy' in Year 13 who will help them settle into College life.
  • Peer Mentors - Year 14 pupils specifically trained in counselling skills are used to suppport Year 8 pupils throughout the year. Counselling Service - A confidential counselling service is provided by 'Familyworks Schools Counselling Service' in the College. Young people can self refer to the counsellor or where concerns arise members or staff will make a refferal.
