Pastoral Care

Villiers is very proud and appreciative of the level of engagement between staff and students in the holistic concept of education, and the strong sense of support that exists for each individual within the education system.

The pastoral care structure at Villiers School ranges from all school staff in a ‘duty of care’ context to specific and defined responsibility among particular groups.

Form Tutors & Year Heads

At junior level, dedication of a Form Tutor ensures continuity of pastoral care while students move through the Junior Cycle. A separate Tutorial Team is assigned to the care of Transition Year.  Senior students then have designated Tutors and Year Heads who oversee their wellbeing throughout Forms V and VI.


Form Prefects are senior students, whose role is to help pupils find their place comfortably in the School community. Prefects should be the first port of call for everyday worries or concerns.

  • Teaching staff
