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.
Wellbeing 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 and community
• Work-related learning
Well-being activities are a regular part of school life and we have a dedicated Head of Wellbeing who works regularly with each year group. Activities have included zumba, laughter therapy and journalling as well as outward bound and assault courses, and 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 have a Wellbeing 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 pupils 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.
Our SEND team has the experience and expertise to offer individually tailored structure and support. One-to-one sessions, additional classroom assistance, a dedicated study skills space in the heart of the school, and a school-wide commitment to championing neurodiversity, create an environment in which all students can flourish.
