Fostering student wellbeing

Academic and extra-curricular achievement at St Catharine’s is determined as much by a student’s wellbeing as it is by their talents and work ethic. Only when our students feel healthy and content are they able to perform to the best of their abilities.

The professional expertise of our College Tutors, Nurse, Counsellors, Chaplain and Porters allows us to deliver high-quality care for the physical and mental health of our students. Their training provides them with the skills necessary to identify and support students with acute and immediate needs.

Pastoral care in College is possible through the generous donations of Members and friends. We aim to build on this service and further promote mental health and wellbeing throughout our community for all St Catharine’s students.

Campaign Target
