This Thesis is an evaluation of Pastoral Care Systems through the experiences. of Black Pupils in a sample of comprehensive schools in a large industrial city in the North. of England. The Study is essentially qualitative in its approach and uses case studies with interviews as the main tool for data collection. Fifty Third Year Black Pupils were interviewed from the sample of schools along with their Form Tutors, Heads of Year end Headteachers. The data collected gave an overall picture of how Pastoral Care was implemented in those schools and the evaluation of that provision from the pupils' perspectives. The Study concluded that there were many deficiencies in the ten areas of Pastoral Care provision which were investigated. Additionally. the conclusion is made that the Pastoral needs of Black Pupils warranted special focus within the conceptualisation organisation and practice of Pastoral Care within those schools.
