Pastoral Care Years 7 & 8

Responsibility for the oldest boys in the school is hugely rewarding: entry into the Senior School draws a line under the boys’ primary education and offers them an opportunity to build upon previous successes, or indeed the chance to reinvent themselves.

The emphasis within the Senior School marks a distinct shift in approach. Staff treat the boys as young adolescents; in return, boys are expected to give of their best in every sphere of school life. A strong learning ethic is essential as the boys approach CE, but of equal importance for my team of Form Teachers is to steer each boy towards making the right decisions at the right time. We are there to offer praise, to support, or to pull on their reins a little.

The three tenets to our approach are:

Confidence – in their dealings with others; either boys from the Pre-Prep upwards, their peers, or to parents and visitors to the school

Integrity – our boys are safe in the knowledge that if they are honest with staff when things go wrong, they will be supported fully

Ambition – we want our boys to leave with a real desire or focus, either in a certain subject area, or perhaps in an aspect of their schooling covered outside of the classroom
