Farringtons School


We place great emphasis on students’ personal growth and have a deserved reputation for delivery outstanding levels of pastoral care. Pupil wellbeing is achieved through a strong pastoral team and form tutors, together with our Chaplain, School Counsellor, and Mental Health Lead.

Peer Mentors

Large scale studies by the Department of Education have shown the positive effects from implementing a structure of this kind. Key benefits include pupils feeling better supported, increased confidence, coping mechanisms and an overall sense of happiness knowing there are trusted Sixth Formers to speak to.

Our Peer Mentors are a group of ten Sixth Form pupils who have gained the internationally recognised Level 2 Mental Health First Aid qualification.

The Wellbeing Room

In September 2021, the new Wellbeing Room opened its doors to staff and students, creating a safe space for individuals who need to clear their head with some quiet time.

School Counsellor

The school Counsellor is available for appointments for all students.

Wellbeing dog

There is increasing research into the beneficial effects of working with animals from the perspective of positive mental health.

We now have a wellbeing dog at school called Atlas. The cognitive, emotional, and physical benefits are numerous for pupils, as they have been found as a source of comfort and relaxation away from the usual school backdrop.

The Wellbeing Hub

The Wellbeing Hub is a trusted source of support, offering advice to parents, pupils, and staff.

Wellbeing lessons

Our weekly, taught, Wellbeing lessons complement the values “caught” around every corner of our safe, oasis-like campus.
