Support to thrive
Your child will join one of our six Houses, each a mini-family within the wider BGS community, they will be part of this house for all of their time in the Senior School.
As well as their Head of House, your child also will have a form tutor, who will typically remain with them from Year 7–11. These strong and lasting relationships mean your son or daughter will always be known as an individual and have someone familiar to turn to if they need a little extra support.
Your child’s tutor will lead Wellbeing sessions for the form group. These sessions will discuss issues and challenges your child may encounter, such as friendships and relationships, staying safe online, or dealing with stress and anxiety, as they progress through their Senior School years.
Peer mentors, specially trained Sixth Formers, are on hand to offer your child informal advice and guidance, and children who are facing bigger challenges can use the services of our School counsellors who are available to provide pupils with confidential, one-on-one counselling sessions that aim to help them explore and resolve any difficulties they face.
