What do we do?

Our aim is to work proactively and collaboratively with our students and families and for young people to feel supported within the school community, so they are able to benefit fully from everything the school has to offer.

We can support to Students on a 1:1 basis or in group work sessions delivering information and advice on:

  • Anger Management
  • Bullying
  • Friendship Groups
  • No Worries (Anxiety Management)
  • Transition
  • Bereavement and Loss
  • Helping to change behaviour, improving attendance, punctuality and organisation
  • Managing feelings and low self-esteem
  • Chill Skills (Relaxation)

We also facilitate a ‘Living with Teenagers' course and Self-Harm awareness evenings for parents and carers.


How can we access the Team?

Students can self-refer by visiting the Bungalow during the school day in their free time.

Family can contact us directly by phone or email on (01743) 235961 or

By contacting the Year Team Leader or Form Tutor in School.
