We are committed to the wellbeing of every child. Our pastoral care processes actively identify the wider needs of every child in our college, and our support programmes are in place to fully meet each level of need. We maintain the highest standard of safeguarding procedures, and train all staff every year to ensure we continue to deliver best practice. Each student has a personal tutor who supports them both with their academic and wider development, and with any pastoral or wellbeing concerns. The pastoral team assisting the tutor includes the housemaster or housemistress, the medical centre and professional counselling services.
While it is paramount that we monitor and support all students throughout their time at the college, at the same time, the students also take on responsibility for each other and care for each other, both within the houses and in the wider school community, in line with the Charterhouse values of responsibility, perseverance, moral courage, open-mindedness and kindness. We understand the importance of students gaining experience in dealing with the problems of other people. Our sense of community, fostered in the houses, is developed further through our independent learning projects, in our peer mentoring programme and in our service learning programmes.
