The John Bentley School

An Outstanding Centre For Learning


Find out about how we have become the first school in Wiltshire to implement the country wide "Thrive" initiative.

On 30th January  2017 we launched our brand new peer mentoring scheme at JBS. We are the first school in Wiltshire to implement the scheme, which is part of a county wide “Thrive”  initiative to equip young people to take care of their own mental health.

20 students from years 10 and 12 have been trained by Kidscape to become listeners for other pupils. They offer one to one support during PDT sessions. Pupils can refer themselves by completing a simple referral form.

We look forward to the scheme making a real difference for JBS pupils.
