The most used phrase on our results days was, ‘I love the unique community at Seaford where they really care.”

As we interviewed students on our GCSE and A Level results days the most used phrase was, ‘I love the unique community at Seaford where they really care.”

Pastoral care and wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do. Director of Care and Welfare, Diana Strange, says: “I have the best job in the world. I am privileged to be part of young people’s lives.”

There’s a whole school approach to wellbeing at Seaford and this comes from our Headmaster, John Green, and the web of pastoral support from tutors, teachers, houseparents, and the senior team means nobody ‘flies under the radar’ and we provide positive interventions. Seaford’s Pink House has four full-time members of staff dedicated to counselling and emotional support and is located in the heart of the campus.

Archie Mayes, from our Upper Sixth, said: “I haven’t used the Pink House but it’s good to know it’s there. It feels like a safety net and it’s good to be part of a community that cares for everyone.”

Megan McDonald, from Year 11, spoke to us about our whole school approach to wellbeing and pastoral care. She articulated really well Seaford’s approach to developing our students. Our students learn to be independent and the drive to succeed comes from themselves, rather than from pressures from the school. These attributes are key for success throughout life, and we’re really proud of how our students really know how Seaford has helped them to develop.

Our students have had a lot of uncertainty to deal with over how they would be graded this year. Diana Strange and Tim Gregory have been on hand to help students during this time, and they couldn’t praise their resilience enough.
