The Pastoral System
The Pastoral System is responsible for the day to day welfare of all students in the school. The school is divided into Key Stages and year groups, for the purposes of administration, discipline and pastoral care: this means, each student can take advantage of the wide range of facilities and activities which only a large school can offer, yet at the same time experience the security of a small school. Each year has an Assistant Head Teacher who takes an overview of the progress and well-being of students within the year. Key Stage Managers and Form Tutors are responsible for monitoring the day to day progress, discipline, and general welfare of the students.
Key Stage Managers manage the work of the Learning Mentors attached to each year to provide further support on behaviour, emotional well-being and attendance.
The Phoenix Centre
The Phoenix Centre is an onsite provision providing a small number of students with more intensive day to day support. Students may be taught in the Phoenix Centre or supported in lessons by a team of Learning Mentors.
