Mindfulness at RGS

Mental health management is key to student development

Since 2015 .b mindfulness has been taught to students at RGS. This is a curriculum designed by a charity called MISP who train teachers to deliver secular mindfulness to pupils. We feel MiSP provide our students with the best strategies to prepare for and cope with the mental stresses and strains of their teenage years. Many of our students use these tools time and time again, and will always have them.

 RGS offer mindfulness in the following ways:

  • Year 8 and 10 lessons within PSHE, providing key skills for each specific age group.
  • 6th Form Course: An 8 week course in MBCT.
  • Summer Term 8 Week Parent Course: Alleviate stress and anxiety, promote your own well-being, enhance resilience and performance. Register your interest or ask for info: mindfulness@rgshw.com
