Please do speak with any staff member if you are worried, concerned or just need to talk and someone to listen. Your Form Tutor, Learning Coordinator and Senior Leadership Team should be the first port of call for any support or assistance you may need.
Please do always talk with your parents for advice, guidance and support. Your families are a great source of strength through difficult times and the extended family will also offer great help to you. Our parishes are also a great source of comfort and your Parish Priest will be able to offer you pastoral support and care.
