The teenage years are not always easy, particularly in this fast-changing world. Thus, it is important that every student feels listened to and that they have someone they can talk to in confidence, with any questions they may have.
PSHE classes enable students to explore well-being, social, digital 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 Pastoral Care and Well-Being Coordinator, take care of the student and refer him / her to the School Nurse
or other professionals as necessary.
