    Pastoral Care

    On entering the school, students find themselves part of a well developed, caring and supportive network designed to meet their personal, social and moral needs. The size of the school assists greatly in ensuring that each student receives a level of support and guidance which is not always possible in a larger school.
     
    Coming to a new school can, for some, seem daunting. But, hopefully, not at the Sylvia Young Theatre School. Each new student is introduced to two mentors, usually one student of a similar age and one older student, who are there to be a friendly face and offer help and guidance when needed. Students always comment on how good it is to recognise and know faces when walking around the school. We are proud that our students settle here very quickly.
     
    There are approximately 250 students in the school from years 6 to 11.
     
    Year 6 is one form of entry and usually contains between 15 & 20 students. Year 7 to 11 have two forms in each year with generally between 20 & 24 students in each form. Each form group has a dedicated academic tutor overseeing their welfare. Tutor time presents an opportunity for information and support to be given to the group or on a one-to-one basis.
     
    Careers guidance at the school is provided in years 10 and 11. Students are encouraged to consider a variety of options before making a final decision.
