We have worked with Dr Asha Patel, CEO of Innovative Minds as part of our contract with Henley in Arden School, to deliver a key stress management and exam workshop programme to year 11’s. We were thrilled with the work Dr Patel delivered and resulted in students feeling less anxious prior to the exams, and the techniques used and shown to the students and teachers being used regularly used through a stressful time. The client was very happy, and whilst the real results will become clearer at results day, the impact has been positive. The school and In2Ambition are very happy with the work delivered by Innovative Minds. We are excited that our partnership is going from strength to strength as we continue to work on additional projects and programmes.
Schools can promote their pupils’ mental health by an ethos of setting high expectations of attainment for all pupils with consistently applied support.
The one-to-one session was really helpful. The student enquired whether this support would be available again.
I used my flash card before entering the exam, it helped me to relax.
