wellbeing at windsor high school and sixth form


The emotional wellbeing of our school community is crucial to living a happy, successful and healthy life. There are times, however, when we all need a little support in achieving this.

There is a vast amount of support online that is free to access and offers guidance, advice, help and tips on how to deal with mental illnesses like anxiety and depression. The Mental Health Foundation provides lots of guidance on how to look after your mental health and this can be accessed here.

You can view some useful guidance from a range of organisations in the table below.
