As the education sector moves optimistically into the bright sunshine of a hopeful summer term, Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate’s (QE) focus on delivering pastoral care of the highest standard for its students will continue to be of upmost importance.
The academic results speak for themselves, but what really sets QE apart is the wraparound pastoral support for students and the incredible facilities and accommodation that they benefit from as part of campus life.
Care is the most important element within the QE Community; every member of the Collegiate, staff and student, is responsible for the pastoral care and happiness of the site.
QE offers support and guidance to all students and parents to ensure that we are all working to support individual students needs and equipping them with the right skills, not only to be successful in education, but to excel in their chosen career and life in general. We are focused on developing our students’ skills and resilience, whilst nurturing their wellbeing. We have a dedicated team of trained staff on call 24 hours a day to offer support and guidance to all students within a specialist welfare area.
QE’s innovative THRIVE@QE programme offers each and every student the opportunity to access a huge range of activities to support their positive mental health and wellbeing. This includes support sessions, workshops, activities and events focused on fostering positive emotional health such as; building self-esteem, strategies to help with exam stress, adjusting to change, home sickness, coping with a loss or bereavement, staying safe online, bounce back, and specialist Forces and international support. Students at QE also have an opportunity to link in with the extensive Peer Mentoring System which runs across the whole Collegiate.
At QE, everything possible is done to prepare students for the many experiences they will encounter as they move through their educational journey and future life.
