We are in a wonderful part of the world for many reasons : historic city and beautiful surrounding countryside, excellent amenities and not least GREAT schools.

We spoke to two of our St Albans Schools. First, we talked to Mr. Paul Ramsey, Head Teacher at Verulam School., which has just had its second Ofsted inspection in the past year and the results were great. We asked Mr. Ramsay about this experience and about the many wonderful initiatives going on at the school to support mental health.

We also spoke to Karen Thomas, Deputy Head at STAGS about their well being village they ran last week and STAG’s support for mental health at school. We also talked to Heather Lee, a year 13 student at STAGs and a STAGs parent who benefited from the WB village.
