The school recognises that growing up through the teenage years can present problems for many young people. Consequently, the school has many levels of support to minimise the impact of these problems on the students' learning.
The pastoral team is made up of Form Tutors, Pastoral Assistants, Heads of Year and two Assistant Headteachers. Their main focus is to ensure students are making outstanding progress in their lessons. The Special Needs Team also has a large part to play in supporting students' learning, behavioural and emotional needs.
