Barney proudly supports Mental Health Awareness Week (15-21 May 2023)

15 May 2023

This week, our School community is in full support of Mental Health Awareness Week.

In recognition of this important initiative’s theme of ‘anxiety’, we are particularly focused on and concerned about students’ mental health during examination season, especially those younger children sitting the SATs.

Following recent, disturbing national media reports about Year 6 children’s experiences with examinations, this year’s theme cannot be underestimated.

A stress-free alternative to these examinations, Prep School’s bespoke Year 6 Achievement Award, instead, focuses on character education and developing crucial soft skills. You can learn more about the Award on our website here.

Watch our social media channels this week for further content as we continue to champion Mental Health Awareness Week.
