What Is Student Wellbeing?

Putting students first

Research shows that students are more likely to enjoy learning, and reach their social and academic potential when they feel content, safe and engaged. Our Wellbeing programme provides students with the skills to build this shared, secure learning community, where everyone’s qualities are recognised, valued and included.

at Halcyon

In our changing world, having the best education is no longer a guarantee of a “good” job or, more importantly, a good life. As the digital revolution expands, and the world of work undergoes such a rapid evolution, students will require greater flexibility, enthusiasm for learning new skills sets, and increased emotional adaptability and resilience.

Students can no longer be passive learners. They need to explore and learn the joys of free and independent inquiry. Socially and emotionally, they need to learn to exercise mindfulness and empathy. Authentic experiences of empathic thinking – young people collaboratively and intentionally building a shared learning community, supporting each other and themselves – lies at the very centre of our beliefs around wellbeing. Our continuously evolving Wellbeing programme ensures self-development is woven into the fabric of a Halcyon education.
