As well as offering pastoral care, the House/Tutorial system also plays an important role in broadening the boys’ intellectual and cultural horizons.

Every ten days or so a period-long tutorial takes place when each Tutor will devise activities which promote discussion amongst his or her boys on matters of local or global significance, ethical or moral concern, or general cultural interest. The business of the tutorial is to complement the syllabus and is considered an important part of a Grammar boy’s overall education. Guest speakers, presentations by boys, excursions to museums, art galleries and the like feature regularly within the tutorial programme.
