Thrive Huntingdon delivers programmes in local secondary schools to support the social and emotional growth of students through a range of programmes.
At St Peters School, we offer early-intervention and pastoral support to help young people develop independent skills to cope with issues such as anxiety and low self-esteem. We do this through weekly 1:1 mentoring over a set period (usually 6 weeks).
If you are a student/parent and are interested in this opportunity, please get in touch with your/your child's SSM.
THRIVE Space - Group Mentoring
The Thrive Space programme is delivered in both St Peters and Hinchingbrooke secondary schools. Thrive Space offers weekly group mentoring sessions across a school term to students in need of additional pastoral support. We cover topics such as emotions, identity, wellbeing, and relationships with others to support the students’ mental health, emotional and social growth. We engage with these topics through games, questions, and activities to stimulate discussion. Students are referred to our weekly group sessions by teachers who have identified that they are facing challenges, and need some additional targeted support.
If you are a student/parent and are interested in this opportunity, please get in touch with your/your child's SSM for a referral.
THRIVE Space - Drop In Sessions
As part of Thrive Space, our youth workers are also available during break time and lunchtime once a week for students to drop in without referral, take part in games and Minute-To-Win-It challenges, and have the opportunity to chat to a Thrive team member. One of the key benefits of Thrive Space is the supportive, friendly space it offers students to engage with experienced youth workers. Students can attend the drop in sessions at the following times:
St Peters: Monday break and lunch, Library
Hinchingbrooke: Thursday break and lunch, Library
