Wellbeing in the Sixth Form
Learning and developing skills of happiness and well-being has a hugely positive impact on our productivity and our ability to live life to the full.
Furthermore, there is a growing body of scientific evidence regarding the benefits of happiness and well-being in relation to the performance of individuals and institutions. There is endless proof that learning to adopt positivity, developing inner resourcefulness and setting out to become caring individuals with a sense of responsibility towards others, helps us to be happy, successful and strong.
At John Taylor High School, we recognise that students need support in developing skills and attributes that lead to a happier life. The Sixth Form tutorial programme is designed to provide opportunities for students to develop resilience, mindfulness and a healthy lifestyle. There are also planned activities to provide opportunities for students to develop new interests and friendship groups, through the Sixth Form show, quiz nights and Sports Clubs. All Year 12 students complete Level 1 Safeguarding training to support them in their role as a Prefect.
For additional support, students are advised to use the following resources:
