Student Wellbeing & Support

The Wellbeing Centre

At the Hurst School we take the Wellbeing of our students very seriously. For a student to achieve their full potential here, their wellbeing is key.

Here at The Hurst we have a dedicated Wellbeing Centre. It acts as a base for interventions such as Emotional Literacy Support or ELSA as it is widely know, Emotional First Aid, Counselling, as well as various other forms of small group and 1:1 support, such as Getting On Groups. It also acts as a safe space at break and lunch time for our more vulnerable students.

With both indoor and outdoor spaces, The Wellbeing Centre is there for all of our students when they need that little bit of extra support, as so many of us often do. It is an important part of making sure that all of our students have the opportunity to make the very best of their time here at the Hurst.

Who can you speak to in school?

If you feel you need someone to talk to at school, there are lots of people ready to listen and support you. Your tutor could be the best person to talk to first but below you'll find other key staff members that are also here to help.
