Mentally Healthy Schools Champions at Highfields

Mr Hevingham, our PE teacher and much-celebrated semi-pro footballer, is also our teacher leading on Mentally Healthy Schools. Mr Hevingham has  recently been working with our students looking at factors involved in mental health. We are not just talking about mental health as an ‘illness’ here – one which may involve doctors visits, counselling etc. – but more as an everyday experience, which focuses on what constitutes ‘generally good’ mental health.

Below are some photographs from this recent project – our top 3 participants and the work they produced… Well done to all of our young people involved!
