At King Edward’s, we believe that the health, wellbeing and happiness of our boys underpins their development and success.
Pastoral care is at the heart of all that we do, and we aim to create an environment where boys feel valued and supported so that they can make the most of their time here and achieve more than they imagined possible.
The relationship between our staff and boys is built on trust and mutual respect. The staff show genuine care for all of the boys they work with and the whole school community works together to ensure mutual wellbeing.
We are open and honest with boys and parents about the challenges they will face while growing up. We are keen to not just react quickly when issues occur, but to put in place as much preventative support as possible to minimise the impact of the inevitable ‘bumps in the road’.
The school’s pastoral structure, support and curriculum – all outlined below – are designed to help pupils navigate these challenges, to develop their self-knowledge, emotional literacy and social skills, and to allow them to lead lives which are fulfilling and rich in meaning, both within and beyond school.
“The teachers here are really supportive and always willing to help, whether it’s academic or personal issues. I feel like I can trust them with anything.”
