The support structure of Heritage College ensures every student has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Students thrive when they feel supported and are happy in their learning environment.


Student wellbeing

At Heritage College, we believe that all children have the right to attend school in a safe and caring environment where their spiritual, mental, physical and emotional wellbeing is a priority.

The Heritage College Wellbeing Team stem into two categories: Chaplaincy and Student Wellbeing.

The Student Wellbeing Team provides youth support and pastoral care services (not counselling, however, referrals are made to counselling services).

Providing support

  • The Wellbeing Team provides one-on-one pastoral support to students, providing emotional support and social and educational values;
  • Works with leadership, teachers and other relevant staff through student care plans;
  • Delivers services that respect the range of spiritual views and cultural traditions in the school community, and also respect the stated views of parents/guardians to ensure the spiritual and moral education of their children.

This is a free service for all Heritage College students.

If you would like to make an appointment to see the Wellbeing Team, please contact Reception.

Student Leadership

At Heritage College, students are encouraged to apply for positions of leadership. Positions of leadership include:

  • School Captains (two for Primary and two for Secondary)*
  • House Captains (two for each college house - Primary and Secondary)*
    *All captains qualify for Student Representative Council (SRC)
Other positions include:
  • Captains for college sports teams
  • Secondary Music Band leader
  • Performing Arts leaders
  • Primary school buddy system for prep students
  • Student Representative Council (SRC), where students can have a voice in decision-making at Heritage College as well as be involved in wider community projects. Students are trained in meeting procedures and take turns in chairing meetings as well as minute taking. SRC is for both Primary and Secondary students.

Informal Leadership

Heritage College encourages leadership throughout the informal processes of everyday classroom life. In every class, students are encouraged to show Christian leadership and be positive role models and examples for others in the class.

Outside the classroom, there is the need to be a leader whilst on the playground and interacting with other students in the college. Leaders will do the right thing, at the right time, to help and guide others.

Leadership in all spaces

Students at Heritage College are encouraged to become leaders in their classrooms, in the courtyard, at assemblies and events, as school captains, in the student council and consequently, in the community.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

Heritage College is a learning and loving community, working together to develop excellent, respectful, resilient, service-minded citizens who own their learning and have a flourishing relationship with God.

The Heritage College community works together through parent, student and staff surveys to agree on four values that undergird all student activity in the college. Students are expected to develop and exhibit these values to others: excellence, resilience, respect and service.

The Positive Behaviour For Learning (PB4L) Policy at Heritage College seeks to embrace all sections of the community through a structured system of behavioural expectations and outcomes.
