Pastoral Care

Promoting and safeguarding the welfare of every student underpins everything we do at Gordon's. Every student belongs to either a Day or Residential Boarding House, providing care and support for each individual. Heads of Houses and Houseparents, together with dedicated teams of pastoral staff, help students to build the emotional strength and resilience to overcome every-day challenges. This work is supplemented by a comprehensive chapel and assembly programme, a mental-health and well-being programme, and the PSHE programme.
