Pastoral care and mentoring are important components of developing dynamic leaders.
It would be unwise to raise up young men who are academically trained and gifted leaders while failing to pay attention to their emotional development. The school system should allow each boy to be cared for holistically.
The pastoral care approach at Calling Academy consists of a pro-active system where boys are mentored and emotionally supported through Connect Groups, Register teachers, Grade Heads, Sport coaches and a Peer Mentoring programme (from 2020). All of these are embedded in a family-atmosphere environment and form an integral part of the school’s Christian ethos.
