Scots College Middle School

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care at Scots involves the management of the welfare and activities of students and is overseen by the Pastoral Care Committee.

This committee represents the interests of specific groups of students from Years 7 – 13 including the Middle & Senior School Houses, international students, boarders, and those with particular learning and medical concerns. School counselling is provided by the school Chaplain, who together with the staff seek the emotional, psychological and spiritual wellbeing of all at Scots. This work is ably supported by the school nurses who run the medical Health Centre during school hours.

The eight houses of the Middle & Senior Schools provide the primary means of pastoral care and support to students from Years 9-13, together with the various inter-house sport and cultural activities. House Deans lead houses and teachers act as tutors in the House tutor groups, which enable more individual care and conversation about the needs of the boys.

Where more specialist care is required for students or families, referrals are made to specialist organisations which support the emotional and psychological well-being of individuals and family groups.
