Student Support

When you join Central, you join a family. Central School of Ballet is a small school with up to just 50 students per year. This means that the staff at Central know each and every student by name. If you are struggling at any time during your training, all of your tutors and the wider staff team are there to support you.

Health and Wellbeing

Health and Wellbeing Team

The Health and Wellbeing Team are on site every day to support students. The physical wellbeing team consists of two physiotherapists, a recovery and injury prevention tutor, and a Pilates tutor. Pastoral care is overseen by our Head of Medical and Wellbeing and Student Support Lead.

Recovery from Injury

Students can contact the Health and Wellbeing Team for support with their physical needs. We are passionate about fulfilling students potential at all stages of the rehabilitation process. This support is provided by all members of the physical wellbeing team.

Injury Prevention

We believe injury prevention is vital in maximising our students performance. The Wellbeing Team works with students and staff to prevent injury. This involves one to one appointments looking at technical corrections, class observations, and supplementary training.

Mental Health

At Central we prioritise good mental health. We provide onsite pastoral care delivered by our Student Support Lead and Head of Medical and Wellbeing alongside a robust referral system to access external specialists. We promote a culture of care and support throughout the school.
