At The Purcell School we strive to prepare our students 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.
As a boarding school, the pastoral education and care of our boarders is particularly important, but the support we provide is equally available to all our day pupils.
Houseparents have a key role in the pastoral life of The Purcell School. The Houseparents live in the houses with their own families, and they and the other resident staff make it a priority to get to know the pupils as individuals. They are always available to advise and support their pupils, whether in a musical, academic or a personal context.
We have a dedicated school nurse who is available to see pupils each day and who will arrange any medical care with the school doctors. We also have a School Counsellor and Physiotherapist, both of whom visit the school once a week.
