PASTORAL CARE

Meldrum Academy has 5 houses, named after famous Scots, each led by a Principal Teacher of Pastoral Care.

The houses are central to the ethos of the school and house identity is fostered through the tutorial system, assemblies and regular inter-house activities.

Senior pupils have the opportunity to take on important leadership roles within the house system as captains, sports captains and prefects. They also play an instrumental role in tutor time supporting younger pupils with aspects of their learning.
