Day pupils are fully engaged in the life of Worth School, including all activities on offer for boarders in the evening and at the weekend if they wish, and around half the boys and girls at Worth are day pupils. Flexible boarding options for boys are available in Butler House.
Saturday Academic Lessons were removed from the Year 7 and 8 Saturday timetable from the beginning of this academic year and this change to the timetable will come into effect for all pupils in all age groups from September 2022. The new timetable is designed to offer day pupils more flexibility – for example, to commit to their out-of-school interests and activities on Saturday mornings instead of coming into school if they so wish. Saturday morning will nevertheless continue to be a busy and enriching part of the school week: there will be an exciting programme of activities, games, master-classes and extra revision, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and opportunities for service in the community, and sports fixtures against other schools will continue on Saturday afternoons.
“The pastoral care provided is tailored to meet the pupils’ needs, where they can develop a deeper sense of self-belief and resilience.” ISI Inspection 2017.
As with the boarders at Worth, day pupils join a House which provides the community and sanctuary where pupils can grow in confidence and fellowship with one another. Each Day House is under the leadership of a Housemaster or Housemistress who, supported by their deputy, has overall responsibility for the pupil's pastoral care and welfare. In addition, every pupil is assigned a tutor, with whom they meet regularly, and every House also has a Chaplain who also provides further invaluable pastoral support. Most day pupils live within one hour of the School and Worth has a fleet of minibuses to pick up and drop pupils from set locations from London and around the South East – click here.
