Nutritional Impact on Academic Performance

18th November 20

Last week we welcomed Amanda Ursell, expert health nutritionist and internationally-published author to the college to not only discuss the great work from Mark, Ollie and the team, but also to discuss her potential input into our health charter and the impact of nutrition on academic performance. We will be working closely with Amanda in the coming months and this complements the work that we will be doing with Vicki Dawson, the CEO of the Children’s Sleep Charity.

In two weeks time Auryn and Mark Johnson will attend a sleep practitioner course and become the College’s first sleep ambassadors. The College is embarking with Vicki in developing an award, the first in the country, focused on sleep coaching and enabling boarding students to appreciate the impact of sleep on academic performance.
