We know that sometimes students need some extra help with looking after their wellbeing. We have an extensive team of internal and external staff who are committed to helping all students with their very individual needs. Did you know that lots of your teachers are part of our dedicated wellbeing team? They have joined the team because they want to support you through whatever difficulties you are facing.
