On Monday 27 January we will be marking Holocaust Memorial Day and the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau by Allied forces.

Pastoral Team

Form Tutors

Form tutors provide daily support to the students and should be the first point of contact for any parental concerns.

All form tutors can be contacted via Contact

Please be sure to include your son's full name and form group to ensure that the message reaches the intended recipient.

In addition to the pastoral support structures common to all year groups (of Form Tutor, Head of Year and Assistant Headteacher), the School has other avenues of pastoral support. The School's Chaplain and School Counsellor can offer additional support and advice for students facing a range of personal difficulties. In more serious scenarios we can also make referrals to external agencies who are able to offer enhanced professional support, such as CAMHS. The wellbeing of each of our students is a matter of paramount importance to the pastoral team at St. Olave's.
