AcSEED Accreditation ~ Something to Celebrate!

Posted: 23rd January 2024

We are delighted to share that Sherborne House has been granted the AcSEED accreditation for our commitment to emotional well-being and mental health. After 18 months – 2 years of work, collating a significant amount of evidence, we are very proud to be the first independent  school in Hampshire to be recognised for this award. Mrs Holmes has driven the initiative from start to finish, compiling evidence from across the school. 

Our whole-school community have helped contribute towards this award and have demonstrated this through the following: school routines, classroom environments, independent learning from pupils, discussions in lessons and assemblies, school policies and procedures, a staff wellbeing committee, and our dedicated group of pupils who are Wellbeing Ambassadors. AcSEED were particularly impressed with the school’s well-established and embedded approach to mental health and wellbeing. 

The accreditation is certainly something for us to celebrate!
