Support and advice

If you have any concerns or worries, please do speak to someone, be that at home or at school.

There are lots of ways in which we can support you, but if we do not know we cannot help. You could speak to your form tutor, a teacher, your Head of Year, the school nurse, a teaching assistant – whoever you feel able to talk with.
