Pastoral care for our boarders is our highest priority and our experienced boarding staff are committed to helping pupils cope with all of the challenges of everyday life, in addition to helping them to settle when living away from home and family for the first time. Each boarding area has its own residential House Staff who are supported by Assistant House Staff. There is always someone on hand when the boarders are in residence.
All boarding pupils can rely on a carefully structured pastoral system in which excellent relationships between House Staff and pupils flourish in an atmosphere of trust.
In addition to the support that they receive within the boarding house, all boarders and day pupils are members of academic tutor groups or ‘forms’. Each form, which is made up of up to 20 boarding and day pupils, has its own academic tutor who is responsible for monitoring their tutees academic progress. Academic tutors communicate with Boarding House staff to ensure that all boarders receive the support that they need to make good progress academically.
Boarders are encouraged to keep in regular touch with their families by telephone or through social media.
