Eastbourne College and St Andrew’s Prep have recently been presented the Wellbeing Award for Schools, the award recognises schools that prioritise and promote mental health and well being within their communities and is granted by Optimus Education in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau.


St Andrew’s Prep was praised for its peer support groups, including Maths buddies, reading buddies and a Play Leaders scheme, where older pupils buddy up with younger ones at playtime, the Snug for pupils to drop in and more formal listening appointments with a member of staff and its coffee and cake parenting course. 


Tom Gregory, headmaster at St Andrew’s Prep, said: “In the process of gaining this award, we’ve had some lovely feedback from parents about our staff and how responsive and supportive they are.  


“It’s wonderful to be recognised for our dedication to wellbeing, which sits at the forefront of our educational programme.”
