Pastoral care and boarding are central elements of life at Turi. The children enjoy spectacular grounds and high levels of security in an up-country location, making Turi a unique place to attend school. The children in both Prep and Senior school live in age-appropriate, single-gender boarding houses that are located close to the children’s school buildings and classrooms.
The boarding houses are specifically designed for the purpose and enjoyment of excellent facilities including gardens and common rooms. In the Prep School, each boarding house has dedicated houseparents who are supported by a team of matrons and staff; in the Senior School, each boarding house has dedicated houseparents and assistant houseparents. The houseparents are always on call for the children and always available to parents by telephone and email. They are committed to the children in their boarding houses and the children are encouraged to view them as their school ‘parents.’
Boarding is a fundamental element of the pastoral programme at Turi. Both the Prep School and the Senior School each have a dedicated Deputy Headmaster whose primary responsibility is the pastoral care within each site. Each Deputy is responsible for a team of staff that includes the houseparents, and they ensure that the pastoral systems in place allow every pupil to thrive.
Turi is a happy place; it is a school where pastoral care and academic success go hand-in-hand to ensure that every child reaches their potential. Find below links to our various Prep and Senior school boarding houses.
