Pastoral System

Quarrydale  has a well-established pastoral system 

Quarrydale has a well-established pastoral system that aims to support  your child’s social, emotional and personal development, alongside their academic progress and welfare.

Our pastoral system is organised in age groups Years 7 to 11. On entry to Quarrydale, every pupil is assigned to a tutor group which will, in most cases, be their tutor for their entire stay at school. Each tutor group is led by a tutor who should always be the first point of contact if there are any concerns, worries or other issues. Tutors develop an understanding and detailed knowledge of each individual’s personality and capabilities. Tutors work under the direction of a Head of Year and a designated member of the Senior Leadership Team.

Pupils are also supported by our Student Support Services Team and by our Behaviour Support Team
