Gresham’s School is dedicated to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils. It is our wish at Gresham’s to develop the full potential of every pupil by providing a safe and caring environment.
The school prides itself on its excellent pastoral care provision which underpins the full character education provided to all our pupils. The Gresham’s ethos is that respect should be shown to all; teacher to pupil, pupil to teacher as well as pupil to pupil and to the wider community.
All pupils belong to a House system and there are seven Houses at Gresham’s Senior School, four boys Houses and three girls’ Houses. These are run by a team of staff overseen by a Housemaster or Housemistress. In addition, all pupils are assigned a tutor whom they meet at least weekly to discuss academic and pastoral issues.
We pride ourselves at Gresham’s in the House ethos, which is one of respect and support for each other, with pupils in older year groups providing mentoring and support to younger pupils.
Day to day discipline falls under the remit of the pupil’s tutor and Housemasters/Housemistresses; serious breaches are dealt with by the Deputy Head Pastoral or Headmaster and always in consultation with the Housemasters/ Housemistresses.
For pupils who become ill there is a fully-staffed health centre with access to a school counsellor.
