Pastoral support

Highlands recognises that pastoral support is imperative to achieve academic excellence. We support the the well-being of our Sixth Form students in the following ways:  

  • Each year group in the Sixth Form has a dedicated head of year. We also have an assistant head of year and two senior leaders. This team has oversight of behaviour and well-being and is responsible for referring students to additional support services if necessary

  • Year 12 and 13 have an experienced team of tutors who can support students 

  • Students have mentoring sessions during form time which enable them to discuss academic and pastoral issues with their tutors

  • Students who require extra pastoral support are placed on one of eleven possible pastoral support programmes including 

  • Students have access to the wellbeing room which is staffed by a trained professional

  • Students have access to the school counsellor

  • Students also have key pastoral mentors should they require further pastoral support

  • Students have access to the stay safe email address
