Pastoral Care

Our 6th form tutors provide pastoral and wellbeing care for every student. The Head of 6th form provides another layer of support for each sixth former. Tutors are charged with guiding around ten tutees through their last two years at BSS. The sixth form tutor's remit is wide, including supporting tutees' co-curricular interests, pastoral care, setting academic targets, and writing reports as well as guiding tutees through University applications and Careers advice (with help from our dedicated team of University, Gap Year and Careers experts). Pastoral care is reinforced by weekly Personal Social, Health and Economic tutoring which features a wide variety of professional speakers, seminars and tutorials. We take pride in providing excellent pastoral care and in preparing our pupils for the next stage of their lives.

Throughout the year we have a range of visitng lecturers as part of our enrichment program. More dates will be added to the progam throughout the year.
