We very much focus on developing girls as individuals, so that they leave school aware of their own abilities and confident.
We also seek to foster spirituality and morality – inspiring sensitivity, tolerance and a sense of responsibility for themselves and society.
Well-being is a planned programme of teaching and learning at Brighton Girls. The four key strands are:
• Health and well-being
• Living in the wider world
• Work-related learning
In addition, there’s a well-being enrichment day every term for each year group. Activities range from outward bound and assault courses, to career and employment days.
The school has shaped my girls into happy confident young women who enjoy everyday school life. They are doing well academically and most importantly socially.– —Senior Parent
We even have a Well-Being Week when students are encouraged to be who they are yet also explore what affects their emotional health. It could be building confidence with circus skills and tree climbing or mindfulness sessions and discussions about the impact of social media on self-esteem.
“The real beauty of Brighton Girls is it’s supportive, non pressurised environment that encourages girls to find joy in their learning, to be positive and excited about their futures.”– Senior Parent
Year 9 students have the opportunity to train to be Peer Supporters in Year 10.
Peer Supporters bond with new Year 7 pupils to help them settle in. They also help students up to Year 9 with anything from friendship advice to homework.
Treating every pupil as an individual is at our core, and we do all we can to encourage those with special educational needs to grasp the opportunity to flourish in our school. Learning Support provision is also on hand to aid access to the mainstream curriculum.
