Lilium, Learning and Support

Lilium (PSHCE at Magdalen) continues through the Sixth Form through a series of talks, which are followed up by tutors. There is also an extensive induction programme, which includes not only the nature of academic challenge but also the maintenance of physical and mental health. This is supported by the staff of the Medical Centre, for more information click the button below.

PASTORAL CARE IN THE SENIOR SCHOOL

 

The Sixth Form places a high value on curiosity, a willingness to take intellectual risks and strong relationships, and in doing so, creates an environment in which it is both safe to challenge oneself, but easy to thrive. This does not involve shielding pupils from the stresses and pressures they are likely to face in the Sixth Form and beyond, but rather through conversation, guidance and by example, leading them towards a point where challenge is greeted as opportunity and resilience builds a flexible and robust mind-set and outlook.
