Bede’s has long been renowned for the quality of its pastoral care.
At the Prep School it is the Form Teachers who lead this important area of work in the School. In the junior years, most teaching is done by the Form Teacher and they therefore develop a rich understanding of each child’s needs and their learning journey.
As they progress into the senior years at the Prep School and begin being taught by specialist teachers, the Form Teacher’s role evolves to be more akin to the Personal Tutor they will have as they move into the Senior School; they of course see each pupils daily but are liberated to support pupils by taking an overview of their progress, helping them as they plan their goals and futures and reflect on the young person they are becoming. As well as being part of a form group, all pupils and staff also belong to one of four Sections and compete throughout the year for Section points and in competitions such as the Section Music.
