The Five Ways to Wellbeing are a wellbeing equivalent of ‘five fruit and vegetables a day’. It is recommended that individuals build the Five Ways (which are described in the boxes below) into their daily lives to improve their wellbeing. By educating and engaging with these 5 aspects across a wide range of subjects, we encourage our students to monitor and increase healthy choices to enable them to reach their potential and ability to unlock a sustainable future. The 5 ways are:
We have 5 specifically tailored courses depending on the student’s needs. These include subjects such as why young people take risk, motivation, life skills, communication, nutrition, sexual health, drugs, restorative practice and much more.

Mindfulness is a powerful way to handle stress, and live life more fully. Mindfulness is all about living fully in the present moment, without judgment, and with an attitude of kindness and curiosity. It’s about breathing, noticing what’s happening right here and now, sending a gentle smile to whatever you’re experiencing in this moment (whether it’s easy or difficult), and then letting it go. You can be mindful anytime, anywhere, no matter what you’re doing. It sounds simple, but it’s not always easy to do, especially when you are stressed!
