Student Welfare

Student Welfare at Leventhorpe

According to YoungMinds, the UK's leading charity championing the wellbeing and mental health of young people, emotional wellbeing is a clear indicator of academic achievement, success and satisfaction in life. Here at Leventhorpe, we take the emotional wellbeing of all our students extremely seriously.

Lucie Biggs is our Student Welfare Officer here at Leventhorpe. Lucie is a qualified counsellor with previous experience working in schools, as well as being a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.  Her role is firmly focussed on looking after student wellbeing, mental health and resilience; pinpointing students' needs and equipping them with new and beneficial tools for life.

Adolescence is a unique and trying time for even the most well-rounded individual and we seek to set out the best possible pathway for each student we encounter, providing confidential counselling, mentoring and group intervention, along with a place of support and other provisions as and when the need occurs.
