Spiritual Life at Virgo Fidelis
Pastoral Care and the Tutorial System
We offer a high level of support to our students, not just to ensure that the transition from Year 11 to Sixth Form is as smooth as possible but to provide a friendly and purposeful atmosphere in which each student will thrive.
All students are assigned to a Form Tutor who is responsible for a group of approximately twenty students. The students meet with their Form Tutor on a regular basis, once a week as a Form and individually in pre-arranged tutorials several times a term. The Form Tutor is there to monitor each student’s general progress and also to help with any problems or concerns, both academic and pastoral.
The weekly Sixth Form assembly brings students and staff together as a community. A great deal of information is imparted on these occasions and frequently guests are invited to come along to speak to the students on a range of topical subjects.
School Council and House System changes from September 2018
House System and Sixth Formers with responsibilities
The school will have a “house” system and all students will be allocated one of four houses, either Saint Agnes, Saint Bernadette, Saint Cecilia or Saint Dorothea.
The Head Girl, Grace Laryea, will be the sole Head Girl and there will be four House Captains, from the current upper Sixth. There will also be Prefects and Monitors in Year 11 and we envisage these teams working together more closely to help and direct the lower school.
