At Homefield we ensure that the boys are provided with the structure to be confident and self-motivated, with a keen emotional intelligence and sense of moral and civic responsibility.
There is a strong and supportive system of pastoral care, anchored by well-established tutorial and House systems. From the Early Years Department through to our Senior School, the boys have significant and high quality contact with pastoral teachers.
Boys thrive on very clear structure, routines, expectations and strong reward. Celebration and respect are paramount and when the boys do well, with either behaviour or study, they can anticipate the admiration of both peers and the wider community. Reward systems are tailored to age and stage and so are highly motivating.
Boys are given early opportunities to exercise leadership through an active School Council and a range of other roles including Form Monitors, Sports Captains and House and School Prefects. They also take part in a wide range of charitable fund-raising initiatives.
Whether a boy's passion is for the library, the concert hall, the chess board or the rugby field, we understand how best to support and guide them to the next and best school for them. When boys leave us they do so as young leaders, with a love of learning, a quiet confidence and a growing maturity.
