“Students are rightly proud of their school and their behaviour remains very good. There is a strong community spirit and the school is a warm and welcoming place to be”. (Ofsted, March 2016)
Our Pastoral Care of our students is second to none. When the student joins the school they are placed in one of four Learning Communities. These communities are named;
- The Americas
Each Learning Community has a team of dedicated staff who act as mentors for the students as well as a pastoral co-ordinator and Pastoral Leaders. Each Learning Community is led by a Head of Learning Community. Your Learning Community pastoral contacts are listed below. Please contact the Pastoral Co-ordinators initially.

The students remain in their Learning Community for five years from Years 7 to 11. Each Mentor group consists of students from Years 7 to 11, this is one of the unique strengths of our school.
Our younger students immediately feel confident and secure in the company of older students who look out for their younger fellow mentees. Our vertical pastoral structure enables our younger students to flourish much more quickly due to the considerate, respectful and caring relationship that exists between the older and younger students.
