Pastoral rationale

Student wellbeing, our priority.

Pastoral rationale

At Virtus, The British Sixth Form College, the wellbeing of our students is our top priority.

Ensuring small class sizes with an average of 5 students per class and two 45-student year groups allows us to meet, support and guide our students individually so that they reach their full potential. We nurture a warm, supportive and friendly community where relationships are built for life. 

Having dedicated pastoral staff and mentoring teams facilitates regular conversation between staff and students and makes sure students’ emotional needs are met.

Furthermore, tracking our students on a personal and academic basis is one of our pillars. Our team of teachers, mentors and psycho-pedagogical counsellors strive to create a climate in which daily effort, enthusiasm and self-confidence are the perspectives from which students face their challenges.
