Living & Learning > Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

Milton Abbey is a unique and profoundly pastoral environment, brought about by the small size of our School and complemented by our beautiful setting and surroundings.

Every teacher knows every pupil, and all the pupils know each other, which creates a genuine, tolerant and wonderfully supportive environment that leads to pupils enjoying life at Milton Abbey.  

The School dedicates itself to delivering outstanding care within the classrooms and boarding Houses, providing individual one-to-one tutoring which runs alongside an academic and co-curricular programme tailored to each pupil.  Tutors and tutees meet each week to discuss the programme for the week ahead, which helps encourage academic interest and wide participation in cultural, sporting and service events and activities.

The Health Centre

Our dedicated Health Centre was opened in 2012 and is open 24 hours a day, staffed by a team of Registered Nurses with experience in dealing with a wide range of child-related illnesses.  Our nurses are supported by the Senior Partners of the Milton Abbas Surgery who visit weekly. The surgery was awarded an 'excellent' rating by the CQC in 2016, something only given to 1% of sugeries in England.
