Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

The health and wellbeing of our pupils is an integral part of College life at all levels and the structures we have in place are continually assessed to see how they can be enhanced. 

Our Floreat Programme uses Cheltonian characteristics to encourage our pupils to develop emotionally, socially, and physically and grow in their understanding of themselves and their world. 

  • Failure is feedback for learning  
  • Look after health and wellbeing  
  • Open to opportunities and to others  
  • Resilient: reflect and improve  
  • Effort brings reward  
  • Ambitious to grow in all areas  
  • Trusted and learn for themselves 

Resident staff are experienced and highly skilled, and a pupil is also in almost daily contact with their tutor. Staff are trained in mental health first aid so are equipped to offer practical advice and support. Many also have coaching and mindfulness training.  

Central to our pastoral care is the partnership we develop with families.

We have supportive policies and structures to promote health and wellbeing. For example, our Chapel offers a space for reflection and mindfulness. Our peer mentor system and the family ethos of our House structure encourage pupils to look after each other. Induction programmes for international pupils and inclusion groups ensure no one feels left out. Welfare practices actively monitor pupils’ mental health and wellbeing. Pupils can seek advice at the Health Centre, where counselling services are available for anyone who needs them. 

We encourage volunteering in the community both inside and outside College as a positive way to celebrate achievements and build vital life skills. 

Central to our pastoral care is the partnership we develop with families. When your child joins us at College, we will engage in a continual dialogue with you and ensure that care is collaborative, proactive and personal. 

In these ways we can develop individuals who thrive and flourish in the fullest sense.
