Mental Health and Wellbeing

Hannah is passionate about mental health and wellbeing. As a Headteacher her school was the first in the county to be awarded the Gold Mental Health in Schools Award and they were shortlisted for a national Place2Be award for schools.

Hannah co-founded the Oxfordshire Mental Health and Wellbeing Network with a colleague Lucinda Powell, which was funded for its inaugural year by the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust. This has led to her becoming: a coach for the Mental Health in Schools Award to support other schools with their strategy, an Associate for Worth-It and a Mental Health First Aider for adults.

Hannah speaks at conferences and national events about leading whole school approaches, embedding it into the school’s vision, mission and values, and creating a culture where we can teach well, lead well and be well. She facilitates workshops on creating safe spaces, working with stakeholders and on developing resilience.

When it comes to authentic and courageous leadership, Hannah is unbeatable. Her value-driven approach allows her to be precise and focused whilst taking an empathic approach. One of the leadership traits I admire the most in Hannah is her commitment to asking the difficult questions that others avoid, and this has been evident in her work encouraging Diverse Leaders.
