The school regards it as its duty to actively promote and safeguard the welfare of its students and is concerned about the well-being of every member of its community. We aim to promote positive and responsible behaviour among all our students and to provide appropriate support for any who may face issues which cause them and their parents concern. We also aim to provide an environment in which high standards of food, medical care and safety contribute to the well-being of students. In all aspects of pastoral care, the school follows the UK’s Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA) standards.
The partnership between parents and the school is crucial in enabling students at Harrow International to flourish as learners, people and leaders. We seek to actively engage parents in the pastoral issues relevant to boys and girls as they grow up.
In the Pre-Prep School, classroom teachers are responsible for the well-being of students and for monitoring and supporting them in their learning life in the school.
On entry to the Prep School all students, whether day or boarding, will become members of a boarding House. From Year 6 onwards, the primary responsibility for their pastoral care moves to their House Master or House Mistress. The importance of the role of the House Master or House Mistress cannot be over-stated as students move towards adulthood. In this vital task, House Masters and House Mistresses are supported by a team of teachers who have roles as tutors to particular year groups within their House. They also have access to specialist pastoral and learning support where it is appropriate.
