At Testbourne School, we believe that supporting a student’s wellbeing is an essential part of their pastoral care.

A student may need access to a range of support over their time with us. Depending on their need, this can range from self help guidance and advice, through to more intensive external intervention. Our pastoral team will work with both the student and their family to ensure that support is in place, either through the school or external agencies as required.

Marcus Rashford – You are a champion

Written with journalist Carl Anka, You Are a Champion is packed full of stories from Marcus’s own life, brilliant advice and top-tips from performance psychologist Katie Warriner. It will show you how to be the very BEST that you can be.

It shows you how to:
- Be comfortable with who you are – you can't be a champion until you're happy being you!
- Dream big
- Practise like a champion
- Get out of your comfort zone and learn from your mistakes
- Navigate adversity in a positive way
- Find your team
- Use your voice and stand up for others
- Never stop learning
