The Curriculum

School is exciting, learning is exciting. Pilgrims’ is a place of outstanding personalised learning and teaching. We take great care to ensure that the interests and specific talents of each boy are valued and developed across our broad curriculum, co-curriculum, and extra-curriculum.

Games & the Arts

A progressive approach to games; traditional sports are played daily. Winter games are football, rugby and hockey. In the summer, pupils can enjoy cricket and athletics. Art, drama and design & technology are much loved subjects. Music is an exceptional strength.

Pastoral Care

Our pastoral care is exemplary. Not only do we have a deputy head pastoral, a director of wellbeing and a lay chaplain, we also have heads of year, form teachers and vertical tutor groups looking after not just the academic but also the pastoral life of the boys. In addition, we have a team of boarding house parents, nurses and matrons working together to provide excellent care.
