Health and well-being

Sixth Form can be a great time of change in young people’s lives, and there are many new situations and issues that students face.  If you feel that you need to talk to someone at the College, in the first instance please contact your Tutor or Head or Assistant Head of Year.  All of these members of staff will be able to advise and refer on to more specialist help if necessary.
