Pastoral Care

At the heart of our school's triumph is the exceptional level of pastoral care we provide. When a student feels valued, respected, and content within the school environment, success naturally follows both inside and outside the classroom.
Our unwavering commitment to superior pastoral care is embedded in the school ethos, emphasising the significance of treating each boy with a sense of security, ensuring they feel integral to the broader school community. This approach not only fosters a conducive learning environment but also cultivates independence of thought.

A pivotal element in achieving this commitment is our small class sizes. These intentionally crafted settings empower teachers with the time and energy to establish profound connections with the students. This fosters a climate of confidence, enabling the students to openly approach staff with any concerns they may encounter.

Our school maintains an open-door policy for parents, actively encouraging direct communication with staff or Head of Department to address any issues, whether related to home or school. Weekly 'students' meetings provide a structured platform for staff to voice concerns and collaboratively explore ways to support individual boys.

Timetabled PSHE (personal, social, and health education) lessons further reinforce our commitment to addressing adolescent challenges and preparing the boys for their roles as valued community members. The strength of teacher-pupil relationships ensures that boys feel secure in discussing any issues that may be affecting them emotionally.

In the spirit of shared responsibility, our boys actively contribute to pastoral care in various leadership roles, such as House Captains, Prefects, School Councilors, Form Captains, and Mentors. Selected based on maturity, approachability, and leadership skills, these individuals play a vital role in creating a sense of unity within the Thorpe family, making every student feel an integral part of our community.
