Pastoral Care

St John’s is renowned for its outstanding pastoral care.

The Head of Lower School has a pastoral overview of the Lower School, and is supported on a day to day basis by a Senior Tutor. Every boy and girl has a tutor who they will see each morning and afternoon who will act as champion and mentor. He or she will always be on hand to offer encouragement and support. Such care gives the pupils confidence and helps lead, amongst other things, to academic success.

We welcome close parental involvement and participation. Indeed, the on-going dialogue between a tutor, pupil and parents is of great importance.

Our senior pupils will act as mentors to those in the Lower School to support them in every aspect of their development.

Our House system, of which the Lower School will be a part, is an outstanding feature of St John’s. It is centred on a promotion of identity, pride and, above all else, a sense of belonging.
