In January 2020, Wargrave House School and College received the Wellbeing Award for Schools from the National Children’s Bureau which recognises how much we promote emotional wellbeing and positive mental health across our whole school community.


During the previous year the whole school ‘family’ had worked really hard to provide a place where all could come to work and learn in a positive environment.

Jean Barlow, WAS Verifier said “Wargrave House is fully focused on promoting the EMHWB of all members of the school and college 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.”

Wargrave House School and College are passionate about the commitment to mental health and wellbeing as a whole school and college approach will continue through our Wellbeing Change Team.

Robin Bush, CEO said “This team consists of a cross section of our school and college community and will aim to continue 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.”
