The Advisory system is a special feature of Whitesands School. Each student is assigned an Advisor with whom he will regularly discuss personal and academic problems and progress. The ultimate aim of the Advisory system is to enable every student to achieve their potential in all areas of life through these personal meetings.
The Advisor assists the student to form concrete resolutions in areas in which improvement is needed. In this role, Advisors strive to help parents in the upbringing of their sons.
