Pastoral Philosophy

Our philosophy for pastoral care is simple: our students should be happy, secure and ready for all that life has to offer. We pride ourselves on our ability to work together as a family in order to achieve this.

We are fortunate to be able to offer individualised pastoral support for every student and we are always keenly aware that it is a privilege to work alongside young people. We recognise the potential in every student, not only in terms of academic success, but also in their ability to make a difference to the wider community. As such, pastoral care at BGS aims to foster in students a willingness to see themselves as part of society, whatever that role and responsibility might involve. We also recognise that, in order to do this, students need to feel safe and secure and, as such, our pastoral philosophy ensures that we work together within school to create an environment in which all students are supported and given the tools to create bright futures.
