Pastoral Care The Sixth Form community is a nurturing and supportive one. Whilst you will notice the increased independence and freedom that is given to you, you can also be assured that you are surrounded by staff that are committed to ensuring that you fulfil your potential; the Sixth Form team is a very experienced one. House staff help to create a home-from-home in the Sixth Form boarding houses and are always on hand to offer salient advice when it is needed. In addition you will be assigned a Tutor who will meet with you individually once a week to monitor your progress in all areas of school life. We recognise that every student is different and so you can expect a programme of guidance and support that is specific to you. Living with your year group also helps to develop a profound sense of community and allows strong friendships to develop. The atmosphere in the Sixth Form promotes a ‘can do’ attitude and there is a richness that comes from every girl simply being encouraged to be themselves. There is a strong commitment to helping each other and this translates into a happy and purposeful environment in which successes are readily shared and celebrated.
