Student Support


See how the pastoral support network at St Cuthbert’s assists our girls in reaching their best.


School years are ones filled with learning and change; particularly during adolescence. These are exciting times but ones that can sometimes be daunting to navigate for both girls and parents. The St Cuthbert’s pastoral support network offers a little extra reinforcement at the times it matters most.

Pastoral support is an important component of the College philosophy and it starts with those who interact with our girls on a daily basis, their tutor teachers and Deans. These key contacts, alongside parents, are best placed ensure students are happy in both their classroom learning and friendships.

Supporting teachers and Deans are the College Chaplain, guidance counsellors and staff in the Personalised Learning Centre.

We promote students having a strong mind in a healthy body and strive to ensure all girls have high self-esteem, positive self-image, confidence and resilience.

Throughout the College we encourage students to understand the importance of asking for help. All girls know that their issues, however big or small, are important to the College and that we will provide a positive, caring environment to address them.

Our Head and Assistant Head of Middle School have regular parent drop-in times and love the opportunity to catch up with parents on their daughter’s progress. We encourage parents to contact the College with any concerns they have about their daughter, our doors are always open and we are ready to listen.
