Each House in under the care of a Housemaster/Housemistress who is assisted by several teachers (called Mentors/Tutors) attached to the House.

Each mentor plays the role of 'loco-parentis' of only about 8 to 10 pupils and discharge the responsibilities of implementing the pastoral care provisions of the school effectively so as to ensure safety-security, health-hygiene, academic, emotional growth and all round development of the pupils.
