Support for Students

Looking After Your Mental Health

The saying “A problem shared is a problem halved” is not a new one; it has been around for a couple of centuries and most probably originated in Germany.

However, it is a saying that is possibly more important today than it has ever been before.

If you are feeling anxious about anything or would like advice about somebody you know, then there are many people at school that you can talk to, such as your tutor, head of house, pastoral assistant or in fact, any member of staff at the school.

The pastoral team are very experienced in supporting students and are trained to listen and give advice. They will be able to point you in the right direction.

You will also find several links below to other organisations that support young people, as an additional source of help.
