Support for Families & Mental Health

COVID-19 is an extremely challenging time for everyone. During this time, we need to ensure that we continue to work together to support our pupils and families.

If at any time you don’t feel great, or you’re worried about what’s going on, or you just need to talk to someone, it’s important you don’t keep it inside. Talk to your family if you have any concerns about how you or someone else is feeling.

Feel free to contact your head of house.
