The structure of our Pastoral Teams ensures our students attitude and outcomes at the heart of everything we do.  The Head of Student Progress and the Pastoral Leader work in partnership to support each year group, and move with that year group as they progress through the school.

The Head of Student Progress has overall responsibility students' academic outcomes and for improving the school’s provision for learning for all of their students. The Pastoral Leader is fully committed to the wellbeing of each and every student in their year. If any student needs support, their Pastoral Leader is there to listen, offer help and advice, try to resolve problems, or just offer a quiet space to think.

Reward and recognition are core aspects of the school and our year teams ensure students' successes and achievements are celebrated. Each team works closely together to ensure that the care of students promotes their achievement and well being.
