Pastoral Care is an essential element of our ethos at King’s. The well-being of our children, both physically and psychologically, is the school’s primary responsibility. All students deserve to be safe, secure and happy at school. When they are, they make much more progress. We call this Pastoral Care.

As with our campus in England, all students in Shenzhen will experience the benefits of a tutor system in which all academic staff are allocated pastoral responsibilities for a group of students. Such a system has existed at King’s since 1886. It is a means for picking up issues and dealing with them sensitively before problems develop.

A system of Educational Support will be available to offer flexible support to students’ individual learning requirements.

In addition, a number of senior staff will be fully trained as ‘Designated Safeguarding Leads’ (DSLs) with ultimate responsibility for pupil welfare.

There will also be a well-equipped Health Centre on campus, run by a team of qualified medical personnel that will provide the necessary services throughout the term.

A school must be a place where students can communicate, experiment and make mistakes. This gives them a sense of belonging and safety, but also allows them space to be creative and to challenge themselves.

A school must also be somewhere that celebrates diversity. All children are different and have their own talents.

We build our whole approach upon RESPECT manifested in three ways throughout the whole community:

The learning, living and playing environment

Most modern studies reveal what we have always suspected that there is a close connection between the environment, both inside and outside, and health and well-being. A student with a sense of well-being learns better and is more successful academically.

The whole design of both the school itself and the curriculum bears this in mind. The school is situated at the foot of a mountain of trees and plants. Our use of this superb, natural environment, in terms of courtyards and gardens, will not only simulate learning but help to create the right atmosphere among students and teachers alike.
