There is one Housemaster in charge of each Grade in Meriway House. The Housemaster is responsible for all pastoral care and academic support of the Grade of which he in charge. Regular meetings are called to discuss academic progress or problems that anyone might have. The staff member is also responsible for the signing of tests and notifying the parents should there be any signs of academic problems. Any queries from the parents must be directed to the relevant Housemaster or to the Senior Housemaster. If a student is deemed not to be giving of his best and his work is not up to standard, he may be placed on daily report by the Housemaster. This allows the Housemaster to check on daily progress of the student from each of his teachers.
