Lower School Pastoral Care

A Supportive and Nurturing Environment

We are fortunate to enjoy an incredibly kind community where staff are supportive and nurturing. In creating this environment, each pupil can freely develop in to their own self and gain confidence and independence. 

Outstanding pastoral care is one of the major strengths of the school. We have an experienced pastoral team, led by tutors, who make a positive and effective contribution to the pupils’ educational standards and personal growth. Our staff ensure that each child is given the opportunity to shine, thereby developing confidence, a sense of achievement and belonging. 

At Horris Hill, we strive for excellence in education and an extension to the academic teaching is guiding pupils to behave well, to be kind, respectful and tolerant. 

Our Qualified Nursing Team

We have a fully qualified nursing team who live on site. In the heart of our school, we have a purpose-built medical centre, where pupils are looked after if they are feeling under the weather, need emotional support, or have had a bump on the sports field.


Food and nutrition is an important part of school life; it is the favourite part of the day for many!  We know that If we want children to perform to their best, then they must look forward to meal times and never go hungry.

We cater for all allergies and dietary requirements. Please ensure this is discussed with the School Nurse and form tutor prior to starting.
