Mental Health Awareness Week

We marked Mental Health Awareness week with a range of informative activities and talks. Pupils learnt about the importance of taking care of their mental health in lessons, highlighting the need to prioritise our wellbeing in all aspects of our lives.

A particularly engaging session was a talk on resilience and wellbeing, facilitated by Mr Jonathan Rowe, Assistant Head (Pastoral and Designated Safeguarding Lead), which provided pupils with an opportunity to discuss practical strategies for maintaining a positive outlook and wellbeing. It was great to see so many pupils actively participate and share their thoughts with their peers on the subject.

At the School, we prioritise the wellbeing of our pupils year-round, and opportunities such as Mental Health Awareness week allow us to reinforce the work we already do. This week has left us all with a reminder of the importance of mental health, as well as some of key tips, from getting enough sleep, to keeping active, taking part in clubs and activities that interest us to name but a few, we can do to stay on top our mental wellbeing.
