Mental Health and Wellbeing


The mental health and wellbeing of our students is paramount to us. Each year group will receive up to two wellbeing sessions timetabled per week as well as a designated pastoral lead. There are also a range of interventions for students to build upon their confidence and social skills.

If you have any concerns about your child's mental health and wellbeing, please contact the school office.
