The team of psychologists are qualified to work with students from Pre-Nursery to Year 13, using specialised techniques such as play therapy, art therapy, sand therapy and storytelling. Students are able to drop in for one session for brief advice and support. Short-term and long-term intervention can also be arranged, based on the recommendation of the school psychologist. They also work alongside our teachers, Student Support Services and Senior Management Team to ensure that our students receive confidential and professional services.
Head of Year and Form Tutors.
Our Secondary School staffing structure incorporates a dedicated Head of Year for each year group from Year 7 to 11. Each Head of Year coordinates with the Form Tutors in their year group to organise fun, interactive and challenging activities during the registration period at the start of every school day. This ensures each student receives an enriched curriculum which introduces the students to different cultures and traditions from around the world, encouraging collaboration and promoting tolerance.
Students are given the opportunity to mediate, discuss and debate global affairs and share their experiences and aspirations. The Heads of Year, with the support of the Form Tutors, closely monitor behaviour, safeguarding and attendance issues, ensuring that any concerns are raised directly with parents. When necessary, they will also liaise closely with the Secondary Deputy Head - Pastoral. The Head of Year will also provide guidance and support to students who are transitioning from Year 6 to Year 7 and Year 11 to Year 12.
