Student Well-being

Was logoAt Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys we aim to embed the importance of Healthy Well-being and Good Mental Health in our ethos.

We are proud to have received the Well-being Award for Schools in November 2022, which focused on changing the long-term culture of the school, so that mental health and well-being sit at the heart of the school.

Our Sixth Form team of Well-being Ambassadors support students at clubs and throughout the school where required. 

Well-Being Resources

Below are various well-being resources that we hope will be helpful for our students and their families. In addition, Tunbridge Wells Early Help provides general help for parents: Monday–Friday Advice Line.

In addition to the links below, there are lots more resources for TWGSB parents in 'School Resources' in the 'School Information' area of the school's app, MyEd. These resources include help and information for parents on topics such as behaviour, bullying, drugs, exams stress, bereavement and keeping your child safe.

Mental Health Resources

The website links and documents below provide some well-being/mental health resources that young people, parents/carers and professionals may find useful at any time.

For young people
  • Mental Health Resource offers free virtual groups called 'Reachout Youth', aimed at 13–19-year-olds looking for confidential support for their emotional well-being. This is a self-refer programme for anyone in Year 9 upwards. Simply contact Mental Health Resource by completing this self-referral form and emailing the address on the form.
  • Kent Youth have created a booklet to help young people support their friends if they are concerned about their mental health or well being. The booklet is aimed at young people aged 13–16 but there is good advice in it for everyone.
  • A free, safe and anonymous online platform, provides advice and support for emotional or mental health problems, giving instant access to free help in a safe environment. Available to all young people, aged between 11 and 25, the service can be accessed using a laptop, smartphone or tablet device.
