Our Benedictine tradition
Outstanding pastoral care for every individual boy and girl is at the heart of Worth School. Our distinctive Benedictine tradition and concern for the wellbeing of each individual is lived out by the school community in its day-to-day existence and is at the centre of life at Worth.
The House system is the pastoral focal point for pupils and parents. The House provides the community and sanctuary where the pupils can grow in confidence and fellowship with one another. Every boy and girl, day or boarding, is a member of a House under the leadership of a Housemaster or Housemistress who, supported by their Deputy and Matron, has overall responsibility for the pupil's pastoral care and welfare. In addition, every pupil is assigned a personal tutor with whom they meet at least five times a week, and very often more than this, to review and support their academic progress.
