Pastoral Care

Plymouth College has 6 boarding houses:

Colson, Mannamead, The Haven, Thompson, Roville and Captain’s House for performance athletes.

The small houses, the Haven, Thompson and Roville, annexes of Colson and Mannamead, provide sixth formers with a taste of independent living, which complements the strong family atmosphere found within the larger, varied boarding environment.

A new student in any of the boarding houses will soon make friends and become one of the community. The boarding staff are responsible for all aspects of a boarder’s life – especially the support and encouragement needed to enable our students to achieve, without needless intrusion.

Boarders are encouraged to share their problems and are supported to come to a mature resolution through mediation and their own efforts. A Plymouth College boarder learns the skills of self-discipline in order to meet the tasks and deadlines that confront them during their academic career in a supportive and caring environment.

Routine health matters are typically dealt with by the School Nurses and House Matrons.

Nurturing our boarders’ individualities, while appreciating the needs of others, is at the heart of Plymouth College’s boarding experience. 

The pastoral care from which pupils benefit is excellent and fosters warm relations.
