Edgbaston High School is noted for its strong and distinctive system of pastoral care. Girls are encouraged to develop their talents in the widest sense and much emphasis is placed on raising self esteem.
Pastoral care is an integral part of every aspect of school life, and works hand-in-hand with academic success.
Students have the support of their tutor The Deputy Head of Sixth Form and the Head of Sixth Form. These are the key staff who provide support and guidance to the pupils and parents.
The Head of Sixth Form liaises closely with the Examinations Secretary to ensure that provision is made for students with specific learning difficulties or who require special consideration or examinations.
