Pastoral Care & Boarding
At Mill Hill International, many of the pupils are far from home and family for the first time so the school takes pastoral care extremely seriously.
A distinctive feature of The Mount, Mill Hill International is its mission to help the international pupil integrate into the whole school community. This is achieved through a dedicated team of staff helping each pupil to discover the opportunities on offer at Mill Hill School that might suit their interests and personalities. From the first day the international pupil arrives in the School, they are introduced to the Mill Hill School community and a programme of participation in activities, whether academic, extracurricular or social is established for every pupil.
Each pupil is also assigned a Tutor who looks after their academic progress and, with the Housemaster or House Parent, takes care of their pastoral welfare. They will have three 40 minute tutorials a week to look after their academic and pastoral development, encouraging them to stay focused on their goals and seize opportunities.
Extra-curricular & Personal Development
The school believes that there is a lot more to education than just academic success. A successful pupil is fulfilled and engaged in every aspect of school life. The Mount encourages its pupils to participate in extracurricular activities to develop their interests, discover new talents and, above all, to engage with others and integrate fully with Mill Hill pupils. A well-rounded pupil is better equipped for independent study at university.
