The School of Wellbeing is a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration. It takes you outside the box and then some whilst sharing practical steps that others have taken to bring their projects to life so that the reader might aspire to emulate some of these successes. It is an easy read full of 'aha' and 'ooh' moments.

I liked the book as an overview of different wellbeing projects carried out in different schools. I would recommend it to pastoral staff in school who are looking for different ways to increase pupil wellbeing - especially those who have some influence over the school's wellbeing initiatives. Even if the charities or specific initiatives mentioned in the book are not practical for the reader's school, the book stimulates imagination and does a good job in showing the wide variety of ideas being used across the country.
