Pastoral Support

“Pupils who spoke to inspectors from across year groups appreciate the high-quality pastoral care provided by school staff and leaders” (Ofsted, 2019)

 

The staff at William Edwards School are committed to ensuring that all students are achieving to the best of their ability and are safe and well cared for.

  • Speak with a PAL
