Support at the College
The wellbeing of all in the College community is very important to us, and we recognise the need to promote positive mental health in one another. Pupils spend the first part of every day with their mentor group and are encouraged to talk regularly with their mentors about how they are doing. Mentors are a key first point of contact too for parents if they are concerned about their child.
We are proud to have an active Wellbeing Forum at the College supporting whole school approaches to wellbeing and mental health. Any pupil can attend Forum meetings, and make a contribution to this vital area of College life.
We know that sometimes some pupils need further support, be that more intensive in-school mentoring or referral to other external services. Pupils, and parents, may speak with their mentor or their Year Lead to explore what help might be possible.
