Our Student Well-Being Counsellor works closely with the students to provide caring, individualised support and liaises closely with staff in this domain. PSHE classes enable students to explore well-being, social and health issues and these are enhanced by externally led workshops. We encourage the students to adopt healthy lifestyles, promote emotional and physical well-being.
In case of illness during the school day, our
School Nurse will take good care of the student and if needs be,
refer him / her to the school doctor or other medical professionals
to provide the highest level of care.
At other times, the boarding
team, closely supported by our Head of Well-being, take care of the student and refer him / her to the School Nurse
or other professionals as necessary.
