Members of staff at Hills Road Sixth Form College in Cambridge have been presented with the AcSEED award for emotional wellbeing and mental health support.

They are the first school or college in Cambridgeshire to have gained the prestigious award.

Initiative founder Charlotte Gatherer said: “AcSEED promotes adoption of best practices in supporting the emotional wellbeing and mental health of young people in schools and colleges, and provides recognition for organisations that satisfy the AcSEED criteria for wellbeing support.

“The AcSEED assessment team were impressed by the strong wellbeing ethos at Hills Road Sixth Form College, and by the comprehensive range of mental health and wellbeing provisions available to staff and students. We are therefore delighted to announce that Hills Road Sixth Form College has been accredited with the AcSEED award.”

Lucy Edevane, associate principal at Hills Road, said “We are incredibly pleased to have achieved this award, which recognises the outstanding wellbeing and mental health support that the college provides.

“For a great number of our students, this support is vital in allowing them to achieve the positive outcomes, both academic and personal, that they strive for.”
