Someone to talk to...
The Centre is in Zone 5C (near the 6th Form and SLP areas). It offers a confidential* service for all students, with advice and counselling on a wide range of issues, such as; Anxiety, Health Lifestyle, Positive Relationships, Bullying, Friendships, Internet Safety, Quit Smoking Information, Self -Harm, Anger Management, Bereavement, Sexual Health, Self Esteem, Body Image, Depression and more...
*The only reason we may have to discuss passing on confidential information would be if you or someone else may be in danger or at risk of harm. We would always try to talk about this with you first.
Many of The Centre's services are run during lessons and by appointment only.
There are drop in session for all students in school and this runs every break and lunch time. This allows students to “drop in” for advice or information without having an appointment. Opening Times for Drop In:
1st Lunch (7,10, 6th form)
2nd Lunch (8,9,11)
