For younger pupils (Infant and Junior departments) the class teacher and Head of Department are the initial points of contact for help and advice, either through their class teaching or on an individual basis.
In the Secondary school, a designated teacher will be responsible for the academic and social welfare of his/her tutor group. This may be via the Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) programme, year group assembly, or more informal contacts during the daily tutor period, which starts each school day. Visiting speakers also add a further dimension to our provision of “pastoral care”.
Staff training ensures that students are given the best possible advice, and teachers receive superior educational advice and training on the latest trends in education.
