Pastoral Care

This is a friendly, close-knit community.  Girls know they can talk to all adults within the school, and they do. 

Virtually every parent would say they want their daughter to develop into a happy and confident young woman. At Notting Hill and Ealing they make it happen.

The Good Schools Guide 2015

Class teachers are responsible for each girl’s academic and social development. They know the girls in their class well and in turn the girls feel they know their teachers, and usually feel comfortable talking to their class teacher about any concerns or difficulties they are having. 

We aim to teach girls a philosophy by which to live, based around the importance of treating each other with respect, listening to the opinions and feelings of others and valuing everyone’s contribution.

Everyone is encouraged to see themselves as part of the school, supporting and encouraging each other.  Girls throughout the school are taught simple but effective strategies for dealing with everyday issues.   Older girls develop confidence and independence through taking on responsibilities such as being a “Playground Pal”, leading their House team, or serving as an elected representative on the School Council.

We know that self esteem, confidence and being happy at school are keys to academic success and all members of the school community (teaching and non teaching, staff, parents and governors) work towards making sure your daughter will flourish here.  We particularly value our close relationship with parents and they feel confident of a warm welcome at school with plenty of opportunities, both formal and informal, to meet staff and share in their daughters’ progress.
