Wellbeing Day was celebrated across both College sites last week (March 11th), offering a range of activities to all year groups, whether a trip out or taking part in school-based wellbeing activity.

The College are mindful of the impact of recent months and to this end hope to be able to encourage friendships and teamwork while giving pupils the chance to appreciate the importance of managing their own wellbeing.

Activities at the Senior School included a trip to Pictura Pottery for Year 7 to create their own piece of pottery, the cinema for Year 8 to watch Sing 2 and Year 9 were able to select from a range of activities on site including football, obstacle rounders and baking plus the option of going for a countryside walk.

Years 10, 11 and 6th form could also choose textiles and range of sports.

At the Infant and Junior School, the children of all ages mixed together and had lots of fun on an exercise obstacle course, forest school (including toasting marshmallows, making delicious fruit kebabs and designing wellbeing messages from found items in the school grounds.

It was a terrific experience and the pupils threw themselves into the activities with the usual Abbey Gate enthusiasm!
