Myddelton College is a close and friendly learning community that prides itself on the quality of the relationships between staff, students and parents.
Our student support consists of:
- Regular meetings with pastoral tutors
- Meeting with an academic advisor fortnightly
- Peer support groups
- Cultural workshops
Every student has daily care, which is managed by their tutor. During the school day, Heads of Houses oversee the pastoral care of the students in their houses. Our Boarding Team work in close collaboration with all staff to ensure the wellbeing of our boarding students is carefully monitored. This enables a seamless and enjoyable transition between the school day and boarding life.
We incorporate support within the classroom as required through targeted help within small groups and individual assistance from specialist teachers. Regularly updated Individual Support Plans are written for students with either pre-existing or newly-identified learning needs or disabilities, with input from the student, their parents, and their teachers. This facilitates effective, proactive support enabling every student equal access to a high quality education.
Students are encouraged to care for one another, disputes and disagreements are dealt with through restorative practices. We encourage students to manage their state of mind and relationships positively. We place great importance on establishing a nurturing atmosphere in which everyone feels secure, happy and is positively engaged. We encourage friendships with fellow students from all over the world, and within their Houses and Year Groups who become family during their time at Myddelton. There are a variety of regular House activities throughout the year. Students are encouraged to be a part of our Prefect Team and Student Parliament as they progress through the school.
