There are between sixteen and twenty boys in each form. The form teacher is primarily responsible for a boy’s pastoral care and will be the person in closest and most frequent contact with his parents. Parents’ Evenings are held annually and full reports are written twice a year.
Boys are allocated to one of four houses for purposes of sporting and other competitions, and to provide opportunities for social links vertically throughout the school. The housemaster/ mistress is also an important influence during a boy’s time at the Junior Branch.
All members of the teaching staff share responsibility for the social, cultural and moral well-being of the boys in the school and are supported by a full-time nurse, the school doctor and two part-time special needs teachers.
