At Redhill School, prioritising the social and emotional wellbeing of our Senior School students is at the forefront of everything we do. We understand the unique pressures they face, including the demands of final exams and the ever-changing landscape of the world they are preparing to enter. By fostering a supportive environment that promotes mental health, resilience, and adaptability, we empower our students to navigate these challenges with confidence and prepare them for a successful future.
The Mentor Programme at Redhill Senior School plays a vital role in supporting the day-to-day wellbeing of our students. Mentors proactively schedule dedicated meetings with their mentees and consistently check in with them throughout the term, creating a safe space for open communication. In Grade 11 and 12, students have the autonomy to select their own mentors, ensuring they have a trusted confidant to discuss any concerns or challenges they may encounter.
Our tutorial programme forms a central part of the teaching day. These focused sessions offer personalised attention from our academic staff to students needing additional support in order to consolidate a concept or to reinforce their understanding.
The Grade Heads are in charge of their specific grade. Their role is all-encompassing as they take on the psycho-social wellbeing, as well as the academic well-being of their grade. The Grade Heads, along with the Mentors, are the first port of call on any communication parents have with the school, or the school has with their parents. The Grade Heads work closely with the Mentors in their grade to ensure that all students’ needs are met. Grade Heads also work closely with the Head of Academics and Head of Student Support Services.
Provided to students and parents at the beginning of each term, our assessment calendars are developed in consultation with subject teachers, faculty heads and the academic head. Our students are encouraged to use these calendars to support their planning and time-management.
Redhill is currently the only school in the country to offer students a choice of graduating with either an Independent Examination Board (IEB) or International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme qualification.
Redhill School’s progressive student leadership structure, the Redhill Student Council (RSC), is based on a fundamental, student-empowering strategy.
