Wellbeing and Self Development

As part of holistic education offer, wellbeing is central to what we do. We work with young people to develop their characters by covering topics such as resilience, gratitude and responsibility. The facilitating of real skills such as meditation and mindfulness support our mission in giving our young people values of integrity, self-worth and an ability to play a positive role. Bespoke sessions are delivered to students, suitable to their age and course level, and include all aspects of health, emotions, wellbeing, finances, politics and careers.

Welfare and Guidance

Our confidential welfare and guidance service is to support learners when liaising with other professionals, providing support with emergency finances and making any referrals to external organisations such as counselling or social services. We’re very proud that our students with a disability or additional learning support needs achieve at the same level as their peers at BCE.

Learning Support

Learning support is available for all learners with educational, social or communication difficulties and young people with disabilities. If you have previously received support at school / college, please notify us during your initial interview. This can vary from extra time in exams to 1:1 support in class.
