Why is this conference relevant?

'Virtually half of secondary staff (49%) have said that pressures had led to pupils feeling suicidal, with 81 percent saying the same pressures are leading students to self-harm' - TES, April 2018

A topic challenging to schools in the independent sector is supporting their students so that they are happy and confident in themselves. Changes to exams, family expectations and a virtual pressure to 'fit-in', has led to a steady rise in mental health problems.

As a result, resources are limited and staff too are struggling to cope. By attending this conference you will be given the chance to help your students thrive with outside-the-box solutions to improve your pupils' wellbeing. 

What can I expect?

In-depth keynotes with leading experts and a choice of workshops including:

  • creative solutions that support growing mental health needs
