At Dulwich College, we are committed to providing a holistic education for all our pupils and see our academic and pastoral work as interrelated and complementary. We believe it is vital that, alongside achieving their academic potential, our pupils learn skills and have experiences that enable them to thrive and flourish during the school day and away from the College. All five schools at the College are committed to promoting wellbeing which is provided in a range of age-appropriate ways: from circle time in the Infants’ and Junior School to the peer-mentoring scheme run by Sixth Formers for younger pupils. There is also a programme in place for boarders. The ability to balance various and considerable demands on our time, while finding space for reflection and remaining well-balanced, intuitive and flexible in our thinking is a key 21st-century challenge and skill. We wish our pupils to be emotionally, physically and spiritually healthy; able to make sound life choices, to engage productively with the community; and be well prepared for life beyond Dulwich. Our pioneering Wellbeing Programme and extensive support for pupils underpins school life and the intention of this publication is to illustrate just how this is achieved.
