Pastoral Care

As a full boarding school, the pastoral education and care of our pupils is particularly important and the support we provide is equally available to all our day pupils.

At Glenalmond, we strive to instil timeless qualities in our students, whilst preparing them for life in a modern society.

The education we provide extends far beyond the classroom, and our young people grow in all aspects of their lives.

Pupils are supported by a complex web of structures within houses and across the College.
House staff have a key role in the pastoral life of Glenalmond. The house master or house mistress lives in the house with their own family, and they and the academic tutors make it a priority to get to know the pupils as individuals. They are always available to advise and support their pupils, whether in an academic or a personal context.

The Chaplain is also available to listen to the day to day concerns students may have, and sometimes a listening ear is all that is required.

Excellent pastoral care. We had seen how well the school had brought on other children we knew. Current parent
