“Our International Tutor helps to support pupils throughout the year and to encourage their successful integration into life at the school. ”
Meet our International Tutor
"As the International Tutor at King’s College, I am here to help and support your son/daughter and to encourage their successful integration into life at the school throughout the year. Part of my role also involves gathering feedback from them on a regular basis about any concerns they might have. I maintain regular contact with their Houseparents in order to help look after their wellbeing. In each boarding house there is an international prefect in the Upper Sixth Form, who is appointed each year to help support and look after the needs of our international pupils within the boarding environment. We also run a programme of events for international pupils, which includes a cultural trip once a term on a Sunday, along with other traditional celebrations, such as our annual Chinese New Year Supper. Within the first week of term I meet with all international pupils so they know where my classroom is situated and how to contact me. On the following page you will see the key information that is provided to all international pupils in the first meeting of term."

A Friendly Face
Each boarding house has a designated international prefect in Upper Sixth who is there to welcome new joiners in September. They are there as the first point of contact for any questions in the first weeks of term and working alongside Lisa Wrobel, will offer support all year round to younger international pupils.
All pupils that join us after Third Form are allocated a buddy. This will be another pupil in the same boarding house and year group who will help with finding lessons, going to lunch, and choosing activities. This allows new pupils to settle in quickly and form friendships.
