Wellbeing | Thorpe Hall School

Senior School 11-16


Exemplary Mental Health and Wellbeing Support

At The Thorpe Hall school we offer outstanding support for all pupils with a focus on mental health and wellbeing.

Due to a trained and dedicated Patoral Care Team, our small class sizes and high staff-to-pupil ratios, we can offer bespoke and immediate responses to pupils’ needs and ensure our school community fosters and promotes positive mental health and wellbeing.

Character education assemblies throughout the year have the objective of looking at essential characteristics that our students will need to navigate their way through school, the community and the wider world. These traits will develop strong, independent thinkers who are resilient in their nature, and have the ability and drive to maximise their potential – both now whilst here at Thorpe Hall School and in the future, wherever life takes them. Our annual whole-school Mental Health Day also highlights many trigger points and through small group workshops, focused talks and a wide range of activities, we teach strategies to help children manage their emotions  and prioritise their physical and mental health for themselves.

Our pastoral care system is outstanding, and our initiatives have been recognised nationally with an award from the Independent Schools Association for excellence and innovation in pupils’ mental health and wellbeing. Staff are on hand to support our students throughout their time with us. We have a fully trained and highly experienced counsellor on site who can also support any students needing further help to overcome an obstacle or tackle a situation, or just needing someone to lend an ear and have a friendly chat to calm and reassure them.

You can find further information and resources for pupils and parents to support mental health and wellbeing here.
