Should a pupil need help on a specific matter, he or she can seek advice from the Guidance Counsellors, Chaplain, Housemasters, Housemistresses or senior staff members who have considerable counselling experience and can deal with issues in a confidential and compassionate manner.​


 A Housekeeper oversees the general smooth running of areas such as the laundry, cleaning staff and any other issues relating to maintenance and tidiness.

A professional catering company, Sodexo, cooks fresh and healthy meals daily for the students, in the school kitchen. There is always a hot meal served at lunch with a vegetarian option and the salad bar for a lighter appetite.
