Achieve – Princes Trust
Two youth workers deliver the Princes Trust programme to senior pupils at NBHS. Young people will work towards gaining accredited units throughout the year which will see them being involved in various learning opportunities and community projects. 

One to One Support

The partnership working at NBHS allows for pupils to have one to one sessions with youth workers when required. The Guidance team refer young people who need extra support. 

Cool, Calm and Connected

Youth workers deliver Cool, Calm and Connected both to all S1 PSE classes at NBHS. This course for young people aims to bring them together on a personal journey to explore what influences mental health and emotional well-being, and supports them in making relevant links to their own lives. It is hoped they will ultimately use the information to make positive choices about how they manage their own mental health and emotional well-being, as well as how they influence that of others.

Raising Teens with Confidence (for parents/carers)

Delivered in partnership with East Lothian Council Community, Learning and Development staff.

Six sessions are delivered to parents and carers. The content looks at exploring:

  • The Teenage Years (Why what you do matters)

  • The Amazing Teenage Brain (What is going on in there?)

  • Risky Business (Managing risk, challenge and adventure)

  • It's Good to Talk (The importance of staying connected)

  • The Brain Under Stress (Overcoming setbacks and developing resilience)

  • Looking after your well-being (Coping with the changes)

Partnership work with Herbspace allows our Youth Workers to refer young people who would benefit from being involved in their projects. We also work together in delivery of some sessions and the use of the Herbspace garden during the COVID pandemic was invaluable. We also work together on co-delivery of the John Muir Award.
