Positive Education and Pastoral Care are a whole College responsibility, with all staff taking a professional proactive role in ensuring that all students are given every opportunity to reach their full potential.
Counselling can assist people to better understand their experience and explore ways of improving their lives. It can also provide resources via education, referral, and strategies to assist students in their development during the adolescent years.
