All staff at School House are involved in promoting the emotional support and friendship so important to the successful development of young people. An unusual and hugely important feature of School House life is that most pastoral staff work only here and have no teaching commitments in school. Their sole task is to see the boarders prosper and achieve.
The atmosphere is relaxed and happy with a very good mixture of social, cultural and academic contributions from all who come to live here. Staff at School House work closely with the boys and encourage them to recognise their own personal strengths. It is their aim to discover the best aspects of the boys and to work with them to ensure they leave School House well prepared for the challenges of life beyond school and as well qualified as possible.
As in a traditional family, mealtimes are a focal point of the day. Food is plentiful and everyone eats together. Meals are prepared by School House’s own catering staff and taken together in the spacious and attractive dining room.
