Student Support

We strongly believe in a personalised approach to student support in which many people play a role including;

  • Tutor who they see on a daily basis
  • Subject based mentoring
  • Head of Year
  • Sixth Form Learning Manager who is available throughout the day
  • On site counselling service

Students can speak to Mrs Barton and Mrs Pass in the Sixth Form office should they have any issues and concerns.

There are also a large number of websites that provide help and support for specific health or well bring concerns.
