Where Do I Go if I Need Help?

If you are finding it difficult to cope, you feel overwhelmed, or are concerned about someone else, please speak your Head of House and/or SLT Link.

The Academy has a BACP qualified counsellor and access to a NHS School Nurse. These professionals are experts and can talk to you; they want to help and are dedicated to helping those like you. You are not alone.
