What support is there for you at school?
All students have access to:
- Regular mentor meetings with their form tutor, alongside daily check-ins
- CCC Wellbeing Newsletter posted below and on Teams
In addition, we have lots of extra internal and external support available to help students with their individual needs.
We have ‘specialised’ mentors ready to support you with your wellbeing/mental health. These mentors can help you with a very wide range of things, so do get in touch with us!
Please speak to your teachers, tutors and Heads of House so that we can support you.

You may have noticed that once a half term, we send out our well-being newsletter. This provides you with less formal signposts and advice for looking after your well-being to help prevent mental illnesses. These signposts can also support you if you are currently struggling with illnesses. As well as the newsletter, we advertise sign posts throughout the year on daily notices and our House board that appear in the House villages.
