Pastoral care permeates everything we do, with an emphasis on kindness to others and ourselves. We place great emphasis on mutual respect and acceptance, so that every child feels valued for who they are.
There is a rich vein of kindness and inclusivity running through the school.”
A culture of kindness
Our pastoral care is overseen by a dedicated Deputy Head and team, ensuring that children feel supported across all areas of school life. Our pupils progress into the College as well-rounded and confident boys and girls.
All pupils are assigned to a House, each of which has a House captain. The year groups mix together, with older pupils acting as buddies for the younger children. There are inter-House competitions throughout the year, involving every child.
Pupils are mature, articulate and confident.”

Preparing for life
Our Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum teaches our children the skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives.
Our pastoral programme includes opportunities for parents to attend a range of seminars. When pupils are introduced to specific topics, we host parental workshops to support their learning. Speakers present about relevant subjects ranging from social media to revision.
Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is embedded within our school ethos. Many faiths are represented within our pupil body, with the principles of kindness and tolerance underpinning all that we do. The children attend a rich schedule of assemblies and Chapel services, which reinforces this area of school life.
Our Chapel is a central part of the local Brighton community. It is often opened to help others celebrate special occasions. ”
