Our Quaker values of honesty, integrity and equality underpin the relationships between students and teachers, with an emphasis on mutual respect. Our starting point is to support students to develop a strong sense of self and then do everything we can to help them succeed.
Our Quaker values influence our strong pastoral care in the following ways:
All independent schools have a tutor system but ours has some important differences to strengthen this key relationship and provide students with exceptional academic and pastoral support. Close and frequent contact helps tutors to develop very close relationships with their tutees and pick up on small details that might be missed in other schools:
The small size of our community means our staff get to know each student as an individual and meaningful connections are made.
We have high expectations of our students. We recognise that young people will get things wrong from time to time and will support them to learn from mistakes. We believe that pupils are entitled to explanation and discussion, helping them to grow and encouraging self-discipline.
We are absolutely committed to our School being a supportive, inclusive learning environment where young people can explore their talents and interests. We will therefore not tolerate repeated poor behaviour, any examples of bullying or discrimination, or other conduct that impacts negatively on the learning, wellbeing or personal growth of other students.
