Senior boarders' issues

June 05, 2019


Why should you attend?

Senior pupils/boarders face considerable pressure on both academic and social development fronts. Their ability to cope with exam stress and manage personal relationships is often severely tested at a time when expectations are high and time short. This workshop is designed to help staff address some of the key challenges our senior pupils/boarders are faced with.


  • Managing expectations
  • Strategies to support student work/life balance
  • Managing pupil relationships in boarding
  • Developments in relationship and sex education.
