Student Wellbeing

We focus on the thing that matters most – your child’s welfare. Our young people flourish because they are treated with care, kindness and respect. We take the time to nurture positive mental health, good physical health and the social wellbeing of each young person in our care.

We take full precautionary measures to ensure the best hygiene standards throughout the campus. We want our students to feel happy and safe so they can concentrate fully on learning.

All teachers take responsibility for wellbeing through the tutor group and Personal Social Health and Education (PSHE) programmes. We provide a wide range of opportunities for  students to mix together across schools and year groups, with older pupils acting as buddies for the younger children.
