Mill Hill School - Pastoral care

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care of pupils has long been recognised as a strength of Mill Hill School. There are seven Day Houses and four Boarding Houses in the School and the Housemasters and Housemistresses, together with their teams of Tutors, aim to provide an environment that is both caring and supportive.

The welfare of each pupil is supported throughout their school career by a Housemaster or Housemistress and tutor team who get to know them well and liaise closely with their families.

We host regular lectures by external experts, for our young people and their parents alike, on a variety of topics affecting teenage life. Professional medical and counselling services are also on hand.

In addition to the House system, pupils’ involvement is encouraged through the various School Councils. These Councils promote engagement across all year groups and meet regularly to discuss a wide variety of issues including catering, anti-bullying and mentoring and environmental issues.

The quality of pastoral care at Mill Hill drew warm praise in the most recent full ISI inspection report of 2012. ” The quality of pastoral care is excellent. Daily tutor groups, regular assemblies and house meetings provide an inclusive and highly supportive structure.”
