Wellbeing and Pastoral Care in the Sixth Form
Our pastoral care continues in the Sixth Form, as our students become young adults and start to make crucial decisions on the next steps in their lives.
We build on the pastoral care in place across the Prep and Senior School and ensure that Sixth Form wellbeing is deeply entrenched in everyday life. Our sixth formers support and care for one another, in a mature and compassionate way, while understanding that the Sixth Form staff are there to aid their transition through the last two years of formal education.
Our Sixth Form tutors and Director of Sixth Form, along with the Assistant Head (Wellbeing) have in place an exhaustive programme of support for social, mental and physical health in the Sixth Form and regularly run sessions relating to these areas.
We train a core of Year 12 students to take on the role of Peer Mentors who will learn to identify and assist with potential welfare issues for younger pupils. This enhances the understanding of wellbeing issues throughout the school and gives our Sixth Form students the opportunity to give back to our community.
