Pastoral Care

QCPS girls are known as individuals in a warm and nurturing environment where they can excel, be challenged and be happy. A long term view is taken of each girl’s development, and pupils develop confidence and a sense of self through the extensive range of opportunities and experiences made available to them. Great emphasis is placed on the development of character, resilience, ambition, good manners, empathy, compassion and social responsibility.
