Pastoral care

The concept of pastoral care can be simply summarised as the care and well-being of each child. All schools should say that pastoral care is at the heart of what they do but Bryanston has unique and effective ways of supporting pupils and helping them flourish. They are broad ranging in scope but focussed in nature. These pages highlight some of those key systems, teams and philosophies.

At Bryanston, one-to-one attention for the individual is at the heart of everything we do. Central to this is the School's unrivalled tutorial system, the jewel in Bryanston's crown.

Like any good boarding school, Bryanston offers a support structure which gives great strength to the individuals who live in its community, in good times and bad.

Regardless of faith, our resident Chaplain is a focal point of our pastoral care system and aims to be a listening ear for the whole school.

Good nutrition is vital to help fuel pupils for the day of lessons, sport and activities, and Bryanston is well known for the quality and variety of its food.

As a school, we aim to ensure that, by the time they leave, every pupil has a sport, game or physical activity they will continue to enjoy for the rest of their life.

Bryanston’s Medical Centre aims to maintain the highest standard of individual and group health and to treat sickness and injury.

At Bryanston, we strongly believe in the worth of a full and varied programme of extra-curricular activities, allowing pupils to explore their talents and discover new interests.
