Student Worry Page
If you have a worry and would like some advice or to discuss how you are feeling, you can send a message to the email address below and our Wellbeing Team will get back to you.
Please give some details of your concern or how we can help you and remember we will be able to provide better support if you tell us your name and year group.
Please do not use offensive or abusive words otherwise the email will not reach us.
Sometimes when we are not feeling our best, we can struggle to explain exactly what it is that is making us feel that way. At other times, we know exactly what it is that is making us feel a certain way but we do not know what to do about it. One of the things we can do to build our own resilience, is to reach out to others who may be able to help.
Below are links signposting you to organisations who have a lot of experience in supporting young people with their wellbeing. Be bold and explore each site – maybe you will find something that helps.
