Pastoral care

“The quality of care, advice and support is a significant strength of the school. Staff aim to know all of the girls as individuals and ... transitions, such as students’ arrival in Year 7 and the start of GCSE courses, are closely and extremely well managed.” 
OFSTED

Pastoral care is at the heart of TWGGS. We firmly believe that if pupils are happy and individually valued and supported they will thrive.

We hope pupils will have a varied and enjoyable experience and we aim to instil in them a respect for others and a desire to always give their best. Pupils have a Form Tutor who supports and guides them, and friendships flourish both within form groups and through a wide variety of extra-curricular clubs. There is a happy atmosphere at TWGGS and we value compassion, open-mindedness and trust.

We offer a variety of support and assistance for pupils who may find things difficult at times. In addition to the caring nature of our tutor groups, we have a member of staff responsible for pastoral support and we employ a qualified counsellor who comes in to school every week to offer sessions by appointment for pupils who need more professional support or advice. Sixth formers also take on the role of mentors and offer support to younger pupils.

Whilst being a highly academic school, we strive to ensure that all pupils become well-rounded individuals who are able to contribute positively and fully to adult life.
