At Tettenhall College we believe that children learn best when they feel happy and secure.
Every child’s contribution to School life is recognised and every success is shared. The School prides itself on its pastoral care, a fact recognised by the Independent Schools Inspectorate, who rated it as excellent. This is what their report said:
Staff provide very effective support and guidance for pupils in accordance with the school’s aim to be warm, friendly and caring. The school lives up to its aspiration to be a single, inclusive community in which everyone is valued equally. Teachers know their pupils very well and are able to respond to their individual needs, whether academic, practical or emotional. ISI Report 2014
Pupils are given support and guidance by tutors, whom the children see daily. Our trained nursing staff are available to help with issues of health and wellbeing, and our peer mentoring scheme means that trained sixth formers are able to provide a friendly ear for younger pupils who need it.
Our pupils are encouraged to have a strong sense of community and always be respectful of others.
We are always very proud of the many compliments our children receive for their behaviour both here at School and when out and about. Visitors touring the school are invariably most complementary about their pupil guides, praising their courtesy and friendliness as well as their pride in their School.
Our School rules reinforce this excellent behaviour and are aimed at keeping our children safe and developing their moral wellbeing. We have high expectations for our pupils and aim to instil positive attitudes towards others which will equip them well in any situation throughout their lives.
