Iona College has an excellent reputation for pastoral care. We believe that girls perform best when they are happy and secure, and we have systems in place to ensure this.
Their psychological wellbeing is every bit as important to us as their physical health. The principle aim of boarding is to give the girls the confidence and skills to be the best they can be, in an environment which fosters achievement, acceptance, respect and individuality.
We neither expect nor want our girls to turn out the same. We encourage them towards self-acceptance and to remain true to themselves.
We have a boarding team that reflects a diverse and wide range of experiences and personalities, and is dedicated to the care and welfare of our girls. For the staff to be effective, girls need to feel that they are valued and supported.
There is the opportunity in their senior years for girls to take on leadership responsibilities. They are encouraged to use this time for personal growth and development as well as giving back to the boarding environment.
