Mental Health and Well-Being

Mental Health and Wellbeing Team

Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.

At Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys we recognise the need to support our students in many ways, to enable them to reach their potential. We have therefore increasingly invested in a support team for those students experiencing difficulties while studying with us. This support goes beyond the pastoral support offered by the tutoring system, with an additional level of personalised help to ease through any problems within their time with us.

Along with the more individualise support, the school is also embedding ‘Wellbeing’ into the PSHE curriculum within the lower schools. This Curriculum aims to enable the boys to understand and discus things that effect every bodies wellbeing and give them practical solution to help themselves and others.
