Our students' wellbeing is our top priority. We strive to ensure that our students maintain good mental health and, if they face any issues, the school has the resources and knowledge to help.
In particular, during the Covid-19 pandemic, we recognise that this is a very unsettling time for our students and their families. There is a wealth of information and resources available offering advice and assistance during this period.
We hope you find the resources on this page useful. We will continue to update them regularly. Should you have particular concerns about your or your child's wellbeing, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
