In NLCS schools, we believe that only when children are happy and settled socially, will they make good academic progress. We place a strong emphasis on pastoral care from the moment a child joins our school. Our motto at NLCS is that ’everyone matters’. Individuals are accepted and celebrated for who they are and encouraged to make the most of their unique gifts. No-one is ‘labelled’ and we work tirelessly to ensure that no child ‘slips through the net’.
In the Senior School, each student will maintain a close relationship with their Form Tutor, who has direct responsibility for the pastoral care of their tutees. The form groups are part of a ‘vertical’ House system in which tutor-groups are made up of students from different year-groups, allowing younger students to be mentored and guided by older students and older students to take responsibility, and act as role models for their younger peers. As part of a House team, students will learn to work with one another, supporting and leading different ages, as well as engaging with the fun of the school-wide House competition.
