Pastoral System


At Maricourt, we pride ourselves on the support we offer to our students. This isn’t limited to their classroom education. We know that throughout school life, students and families may face challenges and barriers. Pastoral support has long been at the centre of life at Maricourt and we understand that pupil well-being, happiness and safety underpins development.

Teachers at Maricourt are more than subject specialists; they all offer pastoral support to our students. Students also have a dedicated team around them.

Form Tutors

Form tutors are the daily point of contact and the first line of support for our students. They build strong relationships with students and offer support and guidance on progress, conduct, organisation and attendance.

Progress Leaders

Each year group has a dedicated Progress Leader and Assistant Progress Leader. Our progress Leaders have experience dealing with a wide range of challenges that students may face during their time at Maricourt. Our Year 7 Progress Leader, Mr Marsh, oversees transition into life at Maricourt and support students and families with adapt to secondary school.
