Student Support

If you have a worry or an issue, it’s always best to talk to an adult about it.

On this page you will find information about who you can talk to at the academy, and some organisations you can talk to outside of school hours.


'Staff are crafting intentional culture of high expectations and warmth. Highest praise from a student ‘I just feel better, emotionally, when I am here.'

Philippa Sadgrove, Director of Behaviour & Attendance Co-op Academies Trust


People you can talk to at school

You can speak to any member of staff you feel comfortable speaking to, but remember, there are some members of staff who have special responsibilities for your welfare, like our Pastoral Team.

We will be adding more information to this page soon.
