Student Health and Well-Being

We are fortunate to be able to offer in-school counselling, which is available to all students. As well as 1:1 counselling students are able to visit the drop-in sessions that are held during break time every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday; students can request referral to counselling via their Pastoral Leader.     

Our School Counsellor speaks about the service offered to enhance student health and well-being.

Please follow the link to our Guide to Wellbeing Booklet, produced by School Counsellor Jo Axton.

Students can also access an anonymous text messaging help service called Chathealth; please follow the link below for more information.


In addition to dealing directly with students health needs, health and well-being are also promoted throughout the school in a wide variety of ways. These include a focus on health and fitness in parts of the curriculum, the focus on healthy eating in our school meals, drinks and snacks available on-site plus an extensive range of extra-curricular clubs providing after-school sports and activities.

Promotion of fitness, the health benefits and the fun that participation in sport provides comprises an important aspect of our Extra Curricular offering, details of which are published on the website. We also recognise that well-being is improved by taking part in a range of activities which engage the student's interest and which might not always be fitness based; our extra curricular programme therefore aims to offer a wide range of options including, for example, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Robotics Club, Choirs and Drama Club.
