Day pupils are fully engaged in the life of Worth School, including all activities on offer in the evening and at the weekend. Approximately one-third of all the boys and girls at Worth are day pupils. Day pupils register by 8.35am, Monday to Saturday inclusive. They may leave after 5.30pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 6.00pm on Wednesday and after 12.00pm on Saturday, if they are not selected for a games team match or practice. Most day pupils live within one hour of the School and Worth has a fleet of minibuses to pick up and drop pupils from set locations around the South East.
“The pastoral care provided is tailored to meet the pupils’ needs, where they can develop a deeper sense of self-belief and resilience.” ISI Inspection 2017.
As with the boarders at Worth, day pupils join a House which provides the community and sanctuary where pupils can grow in confidence and fellowship with one another. Sixth Formers also have areas in their Houses where they can work privately.
Each Day House is under the leadership of a Housemaster or Housemistress who, supported by their Deputy, has overall responsibility for the pupil's pastoral care and welfare. In addition, every pupil is assigned a Tutor, with whom they meet regularly, and every House also has a Chaplain who also provides further invaluable pastoral support.
