How we will care for and support your child

Bishop Stopford’s School is an enthusiastic and friendly place. We pride ourselves on a very high level of pastoral care and this is based on trust, tolerance and respect. During the last inspections, Ofsted praised pastoral care as a strength of the school and the quality of care was also singled out for praise by our parents.

High levels of discipline are an important part of our learning ethos.

A Head of Year is responsible for each age group and leads a team of tutors and attached staff. The school is also organised into houses. Thus all students belong to:

  • a Year Group
  • a House Group
  • a Form Group

The system is designed to:

  • develop to the full potential of all students by carefully monitoring academic progress
  • develop good relationships with parents and carers
  • ensure all students are happy and safe in school
  • provide a full range of extracurricular activities for students to widen their experience outside the classroom.
