Our Pastoral Care mantra

On the Clifton College Performance Sports Courses, it is our aim to provide the same high-standard of pastoral care as provided by Clifton College Sports Coaches, along with Housemasters & Housemistresses during term-times

Whilst the Performance Sports Courses are designed to be fun and enjoyable, they are also intense and tiring at times, so it is important that attendees are taking care of themselves by eating correctly. During the courses, our staff will ensure that attendees are making informed choices with their meals, and will monitor the intake of any ‘snacks’ that attendees purchase throughout the courses.

Sleep is an important part of all sporting activity, and adequate rest will produce better performance. Our staff will ensure that attendees are aware of the importance of a good nights sleep to help them relax and unwind, and ‘reboot’ for the next day.

On residential courses, our staff within boarding houses with make sure all attendees are relaxing and within their own bedrooms at a sensible time each evening, and ‘lights-out’ will be a strict set-time each evening. With the setup of the Boarding Houses at Clifton College, we ask attendees to be mindful of the wishes of others they may be sharing bedrooms with.

Pastoral staff always appreciate the importance of attendees wanting to share bedrooms with friends, and that for many this is an essential part of the boarding experience. But we encourage parents and guardians to speak to their children before attending our Performance Sports Courses and explain the importance of sufficient rest and sleep whilst attending. Our pastoral staff are resident in the Boarding House overnight, and it is their duty to ensure all attendees are safe and secure within their bedrooms and going to sleep at a suitable time.

Attention to our pastoral care on residential courses is very much at the heart of what we offer…

  • Traditional boarding houses with modern comfortable facilities
  • Single & multi-bedded rooms available throughout each boarding house, with individual wardrobes & desks
  • Modern bathrooms on every floor, with washbasins, showers and toilets
  • Common room with television, games console, DVD player, communal kitchen and payphone in every boarding house
  • Boarding houses all with full WiFi coverage throughout, between the hours of 0700 – 2300

Clifton College House Leaders resident in every boarding house, to supervise and assist with student pastoral care, and make sure that students are getting their sleep overnight!
