Our Four Wing Thing
Character & Culture
Well Young Minds
Championing the belief that emotional well-being
is just as important as physical health
We passionately believe that wellbeing is central to a person’s capacity to flourish in all areas of their life and reach their full potential. And wellbeing is not just about the physical – for us mental and emotional health are just as essential.
With a unique combination of substantial classroom experience and an array of credible qualifications, we get results. And what’s more, we’re committed to ongoing learning as theories and perspectives change.
Through working with schools offering inset, training courses, and parent talks – our ambition is simple: to give leaders the expertise to build schools where good mental health is the foundation for all success.

In Their Words
See what the staff we’ve worked with have to say
“The presentation quality was exemplary. The trainers Claire and Rachael were truly superb whilst making the experience very personal too, and every module was supported by beautiful and professional resources and sources of more information for those that desired it.”
“There was a good balance of trainers teaching, delegate conversations (break out rooms), videos and statistics. It was really invaluable to be able to go back over the course material on the learning platform. Understanding different signs and symptoms of mental ill-health and having it all clearly explained was appreciated.”
“Claire and Rachael were both incredibly sensitive, flexible, supportive and knowledgeable. Both were so engaging throughout and they really couldn’t offer more for their learners. The online platform was very useful! This gave more flexibility and opportunity for catch ups when needed. An excellent idea if you have missed out on anything or need to look again.”
