Wellbeing Award for Schools

In January 2020 we were delighted to hear that all our hard work paid off when we achieved the Wellbeing Award for Schools.

Everyone throughout the school, college and residential department worked together to achieve this award which has been developed in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau (NCB).  We continue to work hard to ensure we promote emotional wellbeing and positive mental health across the whole-school community and aim to continue our vision which is to “Effectively Embed a Whole School Approach with Wellbeing and Quality of life of both staff and students being at the heart of everything we do.”

In January 2020, all our hard work paid off when we were delighted to be told that we have achieved the award.

Highlights from the report included:

“Wargrave House is fully focused on promoting the EMHWB of all members of the school community. It provides a calm, warm and nurturing environment to help students gain confidence, independence and relevant life skills to meet difficult challenges”.

“I fully recommend that the school achieve the WAS Award. Emotional and Mental Health underpins all the values of the school. The staff model, support, teach, encourage and foster positivity. It is an exciting environment. The whole school community is inspirational.”
