Thrive Hubs

As part of Wiltshire's plan to support children and young people's emotional wellbeing and mental health, Thrive Hubs were established in 6 Wiltshire secondary schools during 2016:  

  • Abbeyfield School, Chippenham
  • The John Bentley School, Calne 
  • The John of Gaunt School, Trowbridge
  • Matravers School, Westbury
  • Sarum Academy, Salisbury
  • The Stonehenge School, Amesbury

A further 5 schools joined the programme during 2017: 

  • The Clarendon Academy 
  • The Corsham School
  • Devizes School
  • Downland School, Devizes
  • Kingdown School, Warminster

Thrive Hub schools received additional support to help build children and young people's resilience, support parents/carers and promote mentally healthy schools. 

This project involved Wiltshire CCG, schools and Wiltshire Council, making use of CCG transformation funding for children and young people's mental health and wellbeing. 

Work implemented a range of projects, as part of the Thrive Hub action plan. The first 6 schools launched their work during September 2016 with a week of activities and a central event in Trowbridge.

Support available to Wiltshire Thrive Hub schools:

Through strengthening early intervention and prevention in schools we hope to see problems being tackled as soon as they arise, reducing demand for more costly specialist interventions when problems may have become more serious.
