The pastoral care at The King’s Hospital seeks to foster the social and emotional well-being of all pupils in its charge, taking into account the particular needs of both boys and girls, and of both day and boarding pupils.

In their aspiration to promote growth, trust, positive relationships, self-esteem and personal responsibility among the pupils, the Headmaster, Housemasters, Housemistresses, Chaplain, Guidance Counsellors and Medical Staff endeavour to act ‘in loco parentis’, in consultation with parents and guardians. In doing so, they are assisted by Prefects and Mentors, chosen from Forms 5 and 6, as well as The Student Council.

They seek to ensure that pupils, both individually and collectively within the whole school community, gain a sense of safety, belonging and regard for self and others.
