At CLC, we actively seek to embed wellbeing in the day-to-day rhythms of life at College. Pupils enjoy a dynamic and extensive Physical Education programme with the opportunity to make the most of a state-of-the-art Health and Fitness Centre, benefitting not only their physical health but also their mental wellbeing.
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) is an essential part of all pupils’ education that is delivered through the Wellbeing and Personal Development Programme. The programme was set up to help students cultivate the skills and resilience needed to cope and thrive in the wider world. Our aim is to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk, along with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.
The age-specific programme is tailored to the needs of the girls and is delivered through protected time each week. In addition, aspects of wellbeing are covered in other curriculum lessons, the co-curricular programme, and various community and enrichment opportunities during the academic year. Staff from all areas of College are involved in the running of these sessions, working alongside numerous experts and visiting speakers. The students develop a range of skills needed to become actively involved in the life of the school and wider community, while taking on more responsibility and with a growing emphasis on critical awareness and evaluation.
The programme is focused on ways to live a healthy, happy and meaningful life, and to connect with others positively. There is also the opportunity to consider what to do when things are not going as well as they should be, and how to seek help.
