PASTORAL CARE Happy children flourish. Year 7 and 8 is a time of physical and emotional changes. It is a sensitive time for the children and we provide a nurturing environment, where the class sizes are small, and every teacher knows and supports every child. Our pastoral care is first rate, our pupils feel supported and cared for, and this is the key to ensuring that our pupils are happy.
THE JOURNEY TO YEAR 9 & BEYOND While the majority of our Year 8s move to The Kingâ€™s School Canterbury at 13 years, some do go on to a variety of different schools. We work closely with parents, giving personal and professional advice, and, by understanding each individual pupilâ€™s needs, we ensure that the chosen secondary school is the most appropriate setting for their future success.
Some of our Year 7 and 8 day pupils like to experience boarding too, in preparation for their Secondary School journey, and we offer full and occasional boarding, where numbers allow. There is no better environment to do this in than the one that they already know and trust.
