Pastoral care

Courses are supported by a full team of qualified and experienced pastoral staff. Boys are accommodated in separate houses from girls with designated houseparents in each house. The houseparents ensure that every child is properly supervised and cared for at all times. Our resident registered nurse is in charge of all medical needs. 

Accommodation is provided in Winchester College's Boarding Houses, and consists of single, twin bedrooms and small modern dormitories.

All staff receive Safeguarding training and have current DBS certificates.
