Support Every Step of the Way

It is so important to know that your daughter will be supported at every step throughout her time at the Senior School.

From time to time, many of us are faced with problems that may need sharing, and we work hard to ensure the school is a place where every girl feels able to talk to each other and to staff about anything that might be worrying them.

Each girl's tutor or Head of Key Stage, their Boarding Housemistress or the Deputy Head Pastoral are all on hand to listen and to provide support and advice.

Our listening and counselling services are provided by ‘Off the Record’. Our counsellor is available in ‘The Space’ between 1pm and 5pm on a Monday and a Tuesday and an initial twenty-minute appointment can be made with her through the Medical Centre.

There are also a number of organisations and Help Lines outside of school:

Childline: 0800 11 11 www.childline.org.uk
The Office of the Children’s Commissioner 0800 528 0731
www.childrenscommissioner.gov.uk

 

Your daughter can also talk to Mrs Cowell, who has Spitfire the Wellbeing dog to assist!
