Alongside our teaching staff, our nurses, counsellor and clinical psychologist provide both physical and mental health support to our students.

Personal Development

Students have time to focus on personal development through dedicated lessons and off-timetable events.  Topics we cover include:

  • Health and wellbeing
  • Identity and values
  • Positive relationships and anti-bullying
  • Safety and online safety

Within this programme, as well as through tutor and assembly time activities, and in their individual interactions with members of staff, our students think about important interpersonal qualities such as kindness, empathy, courtesy and personal responsibility. Activities designed to build resilience and team work are also included, with a particular focus in the 2nd Year (Year 8), through a bespoke resilience course and our Boetius Outdoor Activities Trip.  In Sixth Form, specialist visiting speakers also form part of the Personal Development programme.
