Frensham Heights:
Pillars of Wellbeing

"Jez visited our school and delivered a really engaging and interactive session with our Year 10 and 11 students.


The talk was thoughtful and ideas around values-led wellbeing resonated with our young people. The students also enjoyed the active workshop which helped them see the benefit of physical activity to mental health."

Jack Talman, DSL & Head of PSHE

Evendons Primary:
Assembly on Resilience

"It was great to have Jez in talking to the students [in years 3 - 6] about practical examples of resilience. 


Jez had helped me get through my first Tough Mudder event a few weeks beforehand, so he used that story and some of the obstacles as metaphors to engage the students. [...] It was great! He even got the students involved, as some of them took part in the Kids' Tough Mudder event. The key takeaway was that you can overcome obstacles in life with resilience."

Stacey Read, Head

Brunel University:

"The Co-Innovate programme at Brunel University London has successfully delivered collaborations between academia and industry since 2012.

Where and when can classes take place?

Our classes can take place at a time convenient to you and can be made bespoke to your needs. They can take place either online or face-to-face.

Why we created these wellbeing and personal development classes

Our innovative platform has been supporting and identifying students in need since 2020.

The wellbeing data gathered by youHQ has been incredibly effective, highlighting individual cases and illustrating a wider picture across the whole-school community. 

With youHQ's insights, schools have been able to discover the issues affecting their students and teachers. Our live wellbeing and personal development classes were founded to help address these topics.

Where it began

Casterton College has been using youHQ since September 2022. Their wellbeing data revealed that many of their students were attributing 'poor sleep' as a main reason for low mood.


Using our specialist expertise, we created a sleep session for the students at Casterton. Initially a live class for an assembly, the recorded session now sits on their youHQ platform for all students to access 24/7.

Unlike other wellbeing workshop providers, we create our sessions based on the live data trends we are seeing within youHQ user school communities.

Do I need to have youHQ to access these wellbeing and personal development sessions?

Put simply, no! You can pick from any of our trending sessions whether you subscribe to youHQ or not. We can also tailor classes to your own needs based on your requirements.
