Wellbeing at King’s Magna

The Pastoral Centre lives at the heart of Queen Ethelburga’s and has a separate team of staff on hand to listen and support students across the Collegiate.

King’s Magna students are welcome to visit the Centre to take time to themselves or to chat with staff. The Wellbeing Team is skilled in dealing with culture shock, relationships and supporting students who are thinking about the future.

A student-centred approach to wellbeing and welfare to ensure your child thrives.
Every Student Feels Seen, Valued, and Heard

Your child is at the centre of King’s Magna. Teaching staff, form tutors, school teams, liaison officers, wellbeing and boarding staff work as one to ensure every student flourishes socially and academically.

There are also plenty of opportunities for your child to meet with staff and other students to voice their opinion and make positive changes to the school. Students can join the Student Voice Committee, School Council, Food Council, Anti-Bullying Council or become a Prefect in Year 9.

Taking The Time To Reflect On Wellbeing

The Pastoral Team organise Whole School Awareness Weeks for students to reflect on key issues surrounding mental health and self-esteem. There are six Awareness Weeks based on the following themes: digital wellbeing, anti-bullying, wellbeing, equality, spirituality and culture. Older students in King’s Magna can help to run activities for Chapter House students and are provided with training in safeguarding and mental health awareness.

A Friendly And Calming Centre To Recharge

The Pastoral Centre is open to King's Magna students all day with lots of wellbeing activities to take part in during lunchtimes and after-school. There are over 20 activities during the week including a King’s Magna Catch Up, Woodland and Wildlife session, News of the World chat and an International Club for boarding students.
