Children's Mental Health Week

The Senior School recently participated in Children’s Mental Health Week by celebrating our uniqueness.

The stigma surrounding mental health is increasingly being reduced by campaigns to raise awareness of the issue and people are becoming comfortable when talking about something which affects so many of us. In fact, 1 in 5 people experience mental health issues at some point in their life.

So what did Runnymede students unique?
