Student Mental Health

This is a very important topic and one that we are aware could affect every student directly or otherwise. Potential issues include eating disorders, self-harm and coping strategies as well as dealing with the pressures of school and exams. This is a topic that we feel is very important to educate our students about; however we understand that parents may also like information regarding this topic. We have staff in school that are happy to discuss any Mental Health issues

Please feel free to look through the links and resources below in order to gain a greater understanding around mental health:
