BSA Sleep Champions

We all recognise the importance of sleep. The benefits of maintaining healthy and consistent sleep routines have long been understood, and we know this is particularly vital for children and young adults.

During adolescence, the body undergoes significant growth and hormonal changes, making sufficient and good-quality sleep crucial for physical and mental health. Sleep plays a pivotal role in cognitive functions, memory consolidation and is an essential component to academic success and overall wellbeing.

The BSA Sleep Champions scheme aims to celebrate and give recognition to schools who are committed to improving sleep hygiene within their boarding facilities.

Become a BSA Sleep Champion

To become a BSA Sleep Champion, members are required to:

  1. Complete a comprehensive sleep audit to assess sleep hygiene in the boarding environment.
  2. Watch the pre-recorded sleep webinar led by Lindsay Browning, Founder of Trouble Sleeping

Completed audits are to be submitted via email to for review.

Once the above are complete, schools will receive a certificate, a logo for use in email footers or your school website and a branded cushion cover for display. Schools will be accredited BSA Sleep Champions for a term of three years, 2024-2027.
