Pastoral Care

When a pupil starts at our school, they are assigned to one of small and friendly Houses. All of the Houses have a warm family atmosphere that pupils find easy to settle into, with the help of the Houseparents. Houseparents are supported by a resident assistant, the school nurses and other academic staff, who are always eager and on hand to help.

Changing schools can be both exciting and daunting in equal measure. The prospect of meeting new people, facing new challenges and being presented with new opportunities is exhilarating, but there are bound to be some nerves, apprehensions and uncertainty. At Box Hill School we understand the difficulties that such a transition can present to young adults and our experienced team of house parents will always be on hand to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.

Each student is also assigned a personal tutor - a member of teaching staff who supports their academic and pastoral development. There is a mix of ages within each tutor group which helps to promote friendship, support and responsibility.
