How many students can you work with?

Our mental health workshops for schools are interactive, and our facilitators make a special effort to ensure all students are engaged and taking part. 

This is why we work with up to 30 students from the same year group at a time.

Sessions are differentiated for each year group.

We can deliver 5 workshops across one day. 

This allows us to work with around 150 students per day.

What do you need to run the workshops?

  • One cleared space for the day:  The school hall is ideal but a cleared classroom can also work well.

  • Projector and sound equipment: Along with the theatre and drama techniques, the wellbeing workshops also includes original animations to support your students learning.
