Community, belonging and a deep-seated sense of friendship is of most importance to us at Worksop College and Ranby House.
“I love the sense of community, especially within the House – everyone is included and has an opportunity to contribute.”fREYA WEBSTER, yEAR 12
We take a very proactive approach to supporting our students' mental health and wellbeing. Our pastoral systems are designed to ensure that pupils always feel there is someone they can turn to if they need help, in an informal or more formal capacity. Our small group (Ys 7 to 8) and our one-to-one (Y9-Y13) tutoring system allows the pupils the opportunity to have weekly, face to face meetings with their tutor, where they are at liberty to discuss all manner of issues, from academic progress to their worries or concerns. Our Housemasters and Housemistresses are also a constant source of support and advice.

Mrs Futter, Deputy Head Pastoral, on the Importance of Wellbeing
"Providing programmes throughout the year for students that address social and mental wellbeing is essential and so our practical workshops like ‘Risk Week’ help students to explore and encourage positive patterns of behaviour, as well as self-esteem and emotional wellbeing.
Whilst students at our junior school, Ranby House take part in a week-long range of activities surrounding ‘anti-bullying’ where students look at real-life scenarios, cyber-bulling and identifying what bullying is.
The more we educate students about social and mental wellbeing, the greater the positive impact on our sense of community."
"My favourite thing about Worksop College is the close relationship you form with all your teachers. You get along with everyone, even the Sixth Formers, and you always feel happy and that you want to come to school."
