Wellbeing Matters 2022

Wellbeing at the College

Emotional health

Pupils develop physical and emotional wellbeing at the College and our programme has been designed also to promote self-knowledge and build emotional intelligence. It comprises six strands: emotional health , spiritual health , physical health , living in community , healthy living and preparation for the future . Throughout their time at the senior school, pupils have time specifically focused on supporting and improving their wellbeing. Pupils from Years 7 to 13 have one period of curriculum time per two-week timetable cycle set aside for the delivery of wellbeing. This is delivered by their Form Tutor. As well as weekly tutor time and assemblies, the Upper School pupils also have a series of lectures, talks and events to support the key topic areas for their specific wellbeing provision. Our programme covers an extensive range of topics including: friendships, bullying, mindfulness, resilience, financial literacy, campaigning, sexting, pornography, mental health, domestic survival, sexual health and careers. We are working increasingly with parents in our quest to encourage a greater sense of wellbeing, in particular with regular Pastoral and Wellbeing parent talks throughout the academic year. In addition to the formal Wellbeing programme, we have structures and people in place to provide support. Our Form Tutors and Year Heads are often the first point of call for pupils and parents. We also have an on-site counselling team, the Medical Centre, the Chaplaincy team, a peer-led mentoring service, a Community Action programme, and activities supporting charitable fund raising.
