Mental Health and Wellbeing


  • We respect and uphold our central belief that all pupils are uniquely made in God's own image for a specific role in this world. It is entrusted to all the staff of Maricourt to ensure that all pupils realise their full potential and develop as confident individuals.

  • All staff are committed to providing students with a solid foundation that allows students to have a healthy heart and a healthy mind and have the confidence and resilience to continue with this mindset into their adult life.

  • Coping strategies, positive mindset, resilience training, Christian meditation and prayer are an important part of our school life. We have a designated  Wellbeing Centre, Learning Support Centre, Student Services and Chapel.

  • The pastoral support system is a strength of the school with each year group having a progress leader and assistant progress leader. We have a school chaplain, learning mentors, a school nurse, careers advisor, SENDco, a number of designated safeguarding leads, SLT wellbeing lead and experienced form tutors.

  • "I loved Maricourt because of the amazing friends I made, the constant support I received from my teachers, and the extracurricular activities and trips." Past pupil 2020

  • "Leaders, including governors, have created a cohesive community where pupils are valued as individuals and cared for extremely well." Ofsted
