The school pastoral care is structured in year groups and each year group  has a Head of Year. We also have Pastoral Support Officers who are non-teaching members of staff and are therefore available throughout the day to work with students who may be having difficulties, whether personal or based on relationships with others in school. The Heads of Year are responsible for the personal and academic development of all the students in their year group and take a lead on attendance, behaviour and the celebration of the student success.
