Pupil Welfare

During her time at College, your daughter will make the challenging transition from childhood to adulthood. We understand that entrusting her care and education to us during this period is not done lightly. 

As a large school, we are able to offer extraordinary advantages in resources and choices, but we are also divided into small groups too, through the three academic Divisions (LC, UC & SFC), the Tutor groups and the House system. These create interlocking layers of pastoral care which enable every girl, the reserved as well as the extrovert, to find opportunities to lead a confident, fulfilled and enjoyable life at College.

Pastoral care is the responsibility of the Head of Pastoral Care, but on a day-to-day basis the Housemistress and Tutor are a pupil's and parent's first port of call. They are there to guide, advise and assist your daughter as she navigates the particular pressures on girls today, especially those which may have been rare in our own childhoods. This network is backed up by an experienced and well-resourced Medical Centre based in College, an informed and skilled Catering Department and the support of the College Chaplain.

Pastoral care isn't something that happens when things go wrong; it's a constant support network for your daughter's time in College.
