A central principle underpinning the pastoral system is that our boys are most likely to be successful
academically if they feel secure within their school environment. To this end, King’s gives great
weight to the importance of effective induction and on-going guidance for each student in our care.
At King’s pastoral care is a strength. Our teachers and support staff are friendly, approachable and spend time getting
to know the students in their care. All our boys belong to one of six houses: Burleigh, Curteis, Foxe, More, Newton or
School. In their House students will participate in a variety of sporting and cultural activities helping to develop a sense of
team spirit and making new friends. All boys have a Form Tutor who performs the main pastoral role, ensuring that they
are happy and settled in the early stages and encouraging them to develop good work habits and become increasingly
more involved in school life. Students will also receive support from Heads of Year.
As boys go on to the sixth form, they learn to take more responsibility for their own actions, however they remain in the
pastoral care of a tutor supported by a Head of Sixth Form and two assistants.
