Tutorial support is integral to boarding life

We have very high expectations of all our boarders, but we don't expect them to achieve them without support.

Each boarding house is run by a Boarding Housemaster or Housemistress, who leads a team of academic tutors. Each boarder is assigned a tutor, someone who can keep an eye on progress, help them make good subject choices, manage workloads, seek help or even just be a listening ear. All tutors are members of our academic staff, so they understand the demands of this environment.

Boarders see their tutors at least once a week in the boarding house, and also during the school day. In fact, the evening and weekend duties in the boarding house are shared between the academic tutors, so there is always someone available for help.
