Pastoral welfare in Atlantic Hall is organized to complement academic development, as a happy and settled student is more likely to succeed academically and have a positive outlook on life. Each student is treated essentially as an individual, with the potential for further excellence waiting to be explored and refined.
We recognize that a pastoral team is invaluable to the school community by promoting a culture of care and support. Our students are carefully guided through their adolescent years and taught to see mistakes or failures as success deferred, provided that they learn from the negative experience. This atmosphere encourages our students to develop a lasting sense of moral, social and spiritual responsibility. The aim is to turn out self-confident & caring individuals through interaction and the co-operation of all school based support services.
All teachers and House staff are involved in pastoral work. The pastoral team personnel are constantly trained and their roles regularly reviewed to ensure effectiveness.
The ‘Core Pastoral Team’ is comprised of:
There is an extensive programme (formal & informal) of activities and the aim is to respond to the needs of students and to offer guidance and support at an individual level. There is always someone a student can turn to for advice, support, or encouragement.
