At Farringtons, we pride ourselves on our pastoral care. Our ethos, our size and our determination to treat each person both as an individual and as a member of the community are important to us. We work in partnership with parents to ensure that all of our pupils feel that they are supported and valued.
Careful emphasis is placed on developing good relationships with teachers through our Form Tutor system and support network. Every boarding and day pupil is assigned a Form Tutor whose role is to guide the academic and social development of the pupils in his or her care. These tutors are closely supported by their relevant pastoral team leader. The Head and Assistant Heads are involved closely in the pastoral life of the school through assemblies, Chapel worship and meeting with pupils on a regular basis.
We also organise regular Year Group meetings so parents are able to discuss their child’s progress with staff and at which individual appointments to see a member of staff or the Head can be readily made.
Our Chapel is an integral aspect of life at Farringtons, and a place where both Junior and Senior School pupils worship regularly.
All Chapel worship is inclusive and no one should ever feel uncomfortable. During worship, we cover a range of topics which ensure that pupils are aware of local, national and worldwide issues. Pupils are encouraged to tolerate, understand and respect each other.
