The Hatherop Positivity Podcast has been just one of the many activities offered as part of our exciting hobbies programme. With a focus on mental and physical wellbeing, the podcast has allowed the children to find out how different professionals have overcome challenges, stresses and issues in everyday life.
The children have delved into important concepts such as enjoyment, the significance of resilience, accountability and making the most of every moment. It is hoped that through these talks the pupils will not only be able to learn how to ask interesting and important questions but consider how to engage in conversation.
The podcast has been a great success, with various guests offering fantastic advice to all the pupils involved.

High Performance Podcast Appearance
Our very own Hatherop Positivity Podcast recently reached new heights when it appeared on The High-Performance Podcast. Mr Williams, who is an avid listener and introduced the school podcast, managed to arrange for a group of children to be interviewed by Jake Humphrey and Professor Damian Hughes to chat about the school’s podcast and the various lessons they have learnt from interviewing a range of guests.
It has been a hugely successful experience for our pupils who have thoroughly enjoyed reflecting and taking away so many different life lessons. We are delighted to share with you a small montage of clips as well as our children appearing on The High-Performance Podcast. We hope you enjoy it!
