The promotion of wellbeing in the college is central to our aim that students achieve their full potential. Students face a wide range of challenges that impact on their wellbeing so through a range of activities and approaches we aim to support the academic, physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual development of all our students.

The World Health Organisation provide the following definition of wellbeing:

“Wellbeing is present when a person realises their potential, is resilient in dealing with the normal stresses of their life, takes care of their physical wellbeing and has a sense of purpose, connection and belonging to a wider community. It is a fluid way of being and needs nurturing throughout life.”
