What is the pastoral care like at Peter Symonds?
We pride ourselves on the care and support given to all our students. Our motto, ‘Counting in Ones’, is very much put into practice by our experienced team of personal tutors. We see each student as an individual and work hard to meet their individual needs. Each year, feedback from students has told us that the vast majority highly value the guidance and support received from their tutor.
What support is there for mental health and wellbeing?
The Hub promotes wellbeing and resilience, and supports students with a range of emotional difficulties. This is via drop-in sessions as well as group and one-to-one support focusing on specific issues like anxiety and stress. Our therapy dogs visit The Hub regularly during the year and are very popular.
We also have a counselling service available to our students. Experienced counsellors are available to support you if you have a complex problem, whether related to college life or not. Appointments are treated in the strictest confidence.
