The pastoral support of all our students is of a paramount importance. For students to realise their potential they must feel happy, safe, supported and respected in their school environment.

The Ruth Gorse Academy has a dedicated team of experienced pastoral leaders who will provide extensive support to all students and parents/carers to ensure the highest standard in pastoral care is provided.

We encourage that students and parents inform form tutors in the first instance with any issues of a pastoral nature. The tutor would then inform the most relevant pastoral leader to deal further with any unresolved issues.
