Pastoral Care


King Henry VIII College is a day and boarding school, and both communities will benefit from a first-rate pastoral care and support network.

Boarders at King Henry VIII College live alongside each other and support each other with a spirit of compassion, tolerance, and understanding. They enjoy dedicated accommodation of the highest specification, as well as having access to school facilities in the evenings and at weekends. Each House is fully staffed with Houseparents, a Resident Tutor, and other Resident Assistants. A programme of weekend activities and excursions ensure that boys and girls who are away from home are relaxed, occupied and content throughout.

The Houses all bear names that resonate with life in Brecon, and speak of our strong links with our sister school and its history:
