Alton School

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care at Alton School is outstanding and one of our great strengths.  Teachers know each pupil individually, care greatly about each, listen to every child, treat them with gentleness and kindness, and nurture them.  Consequently, our studens are secure and happy and know there is always someone they can turn to in times of need.  That security is the foundation of academic success.

In their recent report, the Independent Schools Inspectorate said that the quality of our pupils’ personal development is excellent and they were particularly impressed with the quality of our pastoral care.  As a faith school, we have always had a strong focus on spiritual and emotional wellbeing.  We nurture our students and teach them to love and value themselves.
