Calderstones Shortlisted for Educate Health and Wellbeing Award 2023
On Thursday 28th September, we celebrated the official opening of our Wellbeing Hub with ribbon cutting by Jake Mills of ‘Chasing the Stigma’. We also were over the moon to discover Calderstones has been shortlisted as finalists for the Educate Health and Wellbeing Award!
Mr Ratcliffe celebrated:
“We are delighted to have been recognised by the Educate Awards for the work that the school has done in promoting positive mental health and wellbeing. This is a systemic approach, across the whole school in terms of students, staff and families, but probably best symbolised by the development of the school’s Health and Wellbeing Hub and the fabulous work of the team in and around that provision.
Our instinct that this kind of provision would be integral on the back of the challenges of the school closure periods has proven to have been well-founded but we now have the tools and people to best support those that are in need.”
Wellbeing Coordinator Harriet Rye said
“We are all incredibly proud of the Wellbeing Hub at Calderstones, and are keen to show the world all the good things we do here, to support students and allow them to access the curriculum and to feel better about life! Calderstones is very rare, maybe even unique, in having a purpose-designed space, staffed by a qualified counsellor with twenty-three years school experience, whose sole remit is student mental health and wellbeing."

Winners will be announced at the prestigious Educate Awards 2023 ceremony at Liverpool Cathedral on Friday 17 November.
