Mrs Ann Meisner, Deputy Head Pastoral
“There will be few pupils who do not experience the odd bump along the way during adolescence and we pride ourselves in supporting them, from either within or independent of the School, through any difficult patches they might face.”

We are strongly committed to fostering healthy attitudes to both physical and mental well-being and understand the importance of nurturing in our pupils their ability to develop emotional resilience and to build positive relationships.
“Everyone deserves to feel happy. It is easy to think your problems aren’t valid because they don’t seem as serious as your friend’s, but if you don’t feel ok, you don’t feel ok. It doesn’t matter the ‘severity’ of the reason – feeling happy and healthy is the number one priority. So, smile at someone today and pay someone a compliment. You never know, it may be exactly what will make their day.”Nellie and Sophie, Pupil Pastoral Forum Ambassadors
Sessions are entirely confidential, and offer therapeutic support from an experienced well-being team led by our Mental Health Lead. Most sessions are arranged via self-referral and cover difficulties such as friendship and family issues, anxiety and low mood. Links are made with parents, School staff and the School GP where necessary.
