Pastoral Care

We are extremely proud of our highly effective and integrated pastoral care which provides the foundation on which this special community is built. Every pupil belongs to a division (house) and is looked after by a housemaster/housemistress, house tutor and matron. Pupils are assigned an academic tutor who oversees their emotional well-being and development.

University Places

Typically, around half of students go on to Russell Group universities and a handful to Oxbridge.
