Pastoral: We have a strong focus on the diverse needs, strengths and potential of each girl particularly in view of the uncertain and quickly evolving future we are preparing them for. We value connection and relationships and get to know your daughters through the high quality of our provision of pastoral care and development. Our Wellbeing Coordinator, Deans, Tutors and Year 13 Form Seniors, assisted by all teaching and non-teaching staff, deliver a carefully targeted Wellbeing Programme to each year level which is firmly aligned with our Values and the principles of Positive Education and Psychology. Staff and students all engage with the programme in order to develop healthy habits to be able to ‘feel good and function well’. Competencies, a growth mindset, character strengths and leadership are developed through a variety of opportunities which include Peer Support, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Award, and Education Outside the Classroom (camps, exchanges, overseas and domestic trips, student conferences). Our Global Living Programme is unique and holistic. Girls are empowered to contribute to their own wellbeing while coping with the challenges they will inevitably face as local community members and global citizens.
