At St Mary’s we believe that the basis of a good school is good pastoral care, and we take this aspect of education very seriously. The Head of Pastoral Care and the House Coordinators, working with committed teams of Homeroom teachers, are pivotal to the health and happiness of the student body. We acknowledge that learning only takes place in an environment where the learner feels comfortable, so helping students to achieve an optimum degree of comfort in school is a priority.
Another important goal is the idea of connectedness. We encourage the idea of working closely with parents as partners in their daughter’s education, and as we care for our students, we offer support to their parents.
We are continually reviewing our policies and procedures to make sure that we are providing the best possible learning environment, and believe that we are giving our students opportunities to grow in confidence.
We also believe that a large helping of fun is important, and we aim to give students the chance to enjoy themselves.
Your Mind Matters has been developed to provide our College community, including students access to reliable and useful information in an easily accessible format.
