Pastoral Care


At Hartsdown, we provide a comprehensive framework of pastoral care. We do this by building a culture of love where we care for others and take personal responsibility while simultaneously providing opportunities for students to ask for help if they need it.

All staff are available to offer support and advice with form tutors having a particular responsibility for individual guidance through structured and informal mentoring in their forms. Pastoral arrangements are centred on year groups, where the heads of year and tutors are available to pupils at all times. Senior leaders including the Headmaster are readily available to all students and are highly visible during lunch, break and before and after school.
