pastoral care

Each girl is a member of a tutor group, comprising girls in both the Upper and Lower Sixth.  Each Sixth Form tutor is highly experienced, and tutor groups are deliberately small.  This means that every girl can receive individual help and attention, whether she is feeling exam pressure or needs help crafting her UCAS personal statement.  The tutor maintains a close overview of the academic and pastoral development of each girl.  Through regular one to one meetings with both her tutor and the Head of Sixth Form, each girl is able to have any concerns addressed at an early stage.

Every girl has something to offer, and we embrace this individuality.  There is no such thing as a “typical” St Catherine’s girl – girls who are interested in academia, the arts or sport are equally valued.  We appreciate the contributions of the girl who chooses to work behind the scenes, as well as the girl who enjoys being centre stage.  The only common denominator is that St Catherine’s girls are kind and positive, with a strong work ethic and an enthusiasm for life!
