Supporting students with award-winning pastoral care

Meet our in-school Pastoral team We want you to thrive during your time with us and supporting all our students throughout their studies is a vital element of our school ethos.


We are currently investing £200m in campus developments, which covers a wide range of projects across our campuses.

Work is now complete on our new Carnegie Teacher Education Building. The two-storey teaching facility will be used solely by our teacher training courses and comprises a number of spaces which mimic real-life nursery and primary school settings. All the classrooms have been designed to model both primary and early years learning environments, which will allow our teaching students to investigate the impact of the environment on learning, teaching and assessment. It will also enable the students to work with children from local schools who will be able to visit Carnegie School of Education for aspiration and project days in a cutting-edge, bespoke environment.
