Life at Crosfields

We’re about more than just getting results

Although of course at Crosfields we have a reputation for delivering academic excellence across a broad curriculum, we recognise that there is more to educating a child. Our focus is to provide every individual child with the skills to navigate real-life challenges.

Our pastoral ethos is simple: the wellbeing of the children in our care is always front and centre and we seek to empower them to see themselves as part of something bigger.

We foster an environment in which we can combine support and safety by allowing our children to experience life challenges and develop coping strategies. Educating girls and boys from 3 to 16 years old, we adapt our focus to look at issues most pertinent to them.

Co-educational since 2007

 Consistent foundation to help pupils thrive  

Our strategic staff infrastructure means that Heads of House, and Form Tutors are complimented with peer support to enable us to maintain a full picture of your child throughout their life at Crosfields. By understanding the individual, we are in a strong position to create tailored provisions and allow children to settle in and feel comfortable as part of our school community here at Crosfields.

Taking inspiration from our community  

We operate a number of peer-to-peer support initiatives such as our Wellbeing Ambassadors and Mentor programmes. Children find inspiration within their own year groups and understand the part they play in the wider Crosfields community.

Taking time to listen – Counselling when it’s most needed…

In the Senior School we have trained Counsellors on site twice a week to provide support to our older students.

Crosfields Medical and Wellbeing Suite has two qualified Nurses who are a key part of our team.

Our House system – identity and community through shared goals

A crucial component of our pastoral care.

At Crosfields we strongly believe that being part of a House enables a student to feel part of something and provides a sense of belonging. This in turn generates a safety net, giving pupils the confidence to try things outside of their comfort zones.

The House Activity Programme will run throughout every term and gives children the opportunity to represent their Houses in a wide range of activities, including Inter-House Competition Each area of our school has tailored House systems to be age appropriate and offer all everyone the chance to get involved.
