Class Tutors and House Tutors
Our Pastoral Care policies ensure that all boys are treated as individuals by all members of the College community.
Junior School and Middle School boys have a class tutor who acts as their point of reference for the academic year. The class tutor is the ‘parent’ away from home and any concerns, troubles or particular questions boys have should be addressed to their class tutors.
The class tutor addresses general as well as specific issues with his or her class every morning before the commencement of lessons.
The Senior School boys are organised according to a House system. The College is divided into three Houses – Campbell, Congreve and Ducane – and every student belongs to a House.
Senior School House Masters have the role of class tutors. Every morning senior boys meets in their House Tutor’s room for registration, news and advice ranging from study hints to homework preparation. As in the case of Class tutors in the Junior and Middle Schools, boys can seek their House Tutor’s help at any time during the day if they feel the need to do so.
This service promotes the psychological and emotional well being of students and staff at the college.
Students are encouraged to explore and clarify their problems, to develop coping strategies and to cultivate a positive attitude toward one’s self. Student support promotes an appreciation of both genders and of cultural diversity in society.
Referrals are made by staff members working at College, parents and the students themselves.
Professionals not working at College can also refer students for the service.
