Students have access to a Wellbeing Hub Website, which is updated by the Deputy Head, Pastoral weekly and includes information for pupils on topics such as sleep hygiene, self-care, mindfulness, meditation, healthy eating and staying safe online. The Wellbeing Hub was featured in School House Magazine and has proved extremely popular with all year groups.
Cardiff Sixth Form College also employs a dedicated Wellbeing Officer. The College Wellbeing Officer is experienced in many areas of mental health and has worked with children and young people throughout her career. Pupils can make individual appointments to see her and can attend bespoke workshops based on a variety of wellbeing topics throughout the course of the year.
Cardiff Sixth Form College has a fully equipped medical centre and should students be taken ill whilst at College they will be cared for within the College sick bay.
The College medical team comprises two fully qualified nurses plus two matrons who provide treatment for acute illnesses, along with administering over the counter and prescribed medications to students. In addition, the College medical team provides the most up-to-date knowledge and guidance on all health-related matters, guiding students on a variety of public health measures and recommendations.
All international students coming to the UK pay a National heath surcharge as part of their visa application and complete an NHS registration form on arrival at the College. The National Health Service is world leading and provides a comprehensive range of free health services for all our students who are effectively living in the UK. All students have access to a local GP surgery located close by and can make appointments to see fully qualified medical practitioners for consultative appointments and/or prescription requests and enquiries. There are three excellent major hospitals located in the centre of Cardiff and students will be accompanied in the case of accident or emergency by the House Staff.
