Pastoral Care During Lockdown

Our Principal believes pastoral care is the most important thing Queen's does; and the need to care for our pupils' mental health is only heightened during lockdown

Richard Tillett, our Principal, wrote about the importance of maintaining pastoral care, even during those months of remote schooling earlier this year, when the College had to close.

In September the whole College community was delighted to be able to return to Harley Street in person. Obviously there have had to be many adjustments, including separating year groups into different 'bubbles'; maintaining social distancing; wearing masks in the corridors and communal areas; implementing a one way system throughout the College; and holding music lessons behind perspex screens - the list goes on! 

While we are absolutely determined that the College will stay open as long as the government allows us to during this new lockdown, sadly it's inevitable that some groups of pupils will need to stay at home during periods of self-isolation. The College stands ready to support these groups of pupils with remote learning but, as Richard set out in his article above, it isn't all about the academics - it feels like protecting our pupils' mental health and well-being has never been as important as it is now.
