We have a team of compassionate staff who become integral to the lives of our students and work collaboratively to understand and support the needs of each individual under their care, including consideration for intellectual, physical, spiritual, social and emotional aspects of a student’s development.

Vice Principal | Residential Education, Care & Community

As a member of the Executive Leadership Team, the Vice Principal brings a vital link between executive management and the living and learning community members of the Corio Campus.  

Head of Middle School

The Head of Middle School is responsible for managing and facilitating programmes, policies, and actions to support a culture of quality teaching and learning in Middle School and enhance the delivery of our pastoral care programme.  

Head of House

The Head of House is a pivotal figure across all aspects of a student’s life in Middle School, overseeing the care and wellbeing of each student in their house, and upholding the rules, routines and expectations that are consistent with overall school policy. 

Assistant Head of House

The Assistant Head of House supports the Head of House in the day-to-day running of the house and assists in overseeing each student’s academic and pastoral needs.


Mentors are vital in supporting a sense of community connectedness within each house. Mentors are academic staff whose purpose is to maintain positive and supportive relationships within their mentor groups in Years 7 and 8.
Mentor groups meet regularly each week, allowing Mentors to check in with each student and respond to their pastoral, wellbeing and learning needs as they arise. They are the first point of contact for parents in addressing academic or pastoral queries. For Year 5 and 6 students, the classroom teacher is their mentor and a key contact in day-today matters relating to your child.

House Assistant (boarding)

House Assistants care for the general health and wellbeing of boarders and oversee the day-to-day matters of the house, such as laundry, cleanliness, daily operations, student movements and general care for students.
