Pastoral Care & Boarding
The next ten years will see the renewal of all the school’s boarding accommodation, the refurbishment of the main Abbey Building and a new Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Centre. This process began with the building of two new boarding houses which opened recently.
At the heart of the School’s success is a total commitment to the development of good, caring human beings through proactive and personalised pastoral care.
