‘Wellbeing HQ’ – Wellbeing updates from Northampton High

Our new wellbeing space has been given a new name after a student vote

Earlier this term, we were delighted to run a pupil competition for naming our new wellbeing space in the Senior School. The space forms a hub for wellbeing and positive mental health for our students and it is a fantastic addition to the school. We are keen for our students to gain tools to manage their own mental health and wellbeing; we want it to be as easy for a student to talk about their mental wellbeing as it is to talk about their physical health and to remove any stigma around talking about it.

With 5 student-submitted suggestions to choose from, the voting competition to name the room was fierce and we are delighted to announce that ‘Wellbeing HQ’ came out on top with 41% of the vote! The breakdown of the voting can be seen below:

With half term beginning this afternoon, our Wellbeing Team would also like to share with you a few autumnal wellbeing tips for you and your families to enjoy over the two week break:

Junior School: Looking at the colour of leaves, amazing sunsets, fire-side cuddles/movies, long family walks, hot chocs with marshmallows.

Senior School: Periods of connection (however that may look), looking at the beautiful colours of nature, watching sunsets, family time, screen-free time, new music artist.
