Student Support

The Unit

To further support those students who have problems in the observation of school rules and coping with the social skills which we expect, we have a Student Support centre named The Unit.

For any misdemeanour which causes a student to be excluded from class, the student will be placed in the Unit whilst the incident is investigated. He/she will follow his/her curriculum but at the same time receive strategies from the staff to help them cope with similar situations in the near future.

Learning Mentors

The school has in place Learning Mentors who work with and support students who, for various reasons, are not fulfilling their potential. The Learning Mentors work alongside the Special Educational Needs Department, Student Support staff and Heads of House in identifying and supporting these students.

We have a Learning Mentor/Counsellor, Mrs A Mackie and a Learning Mentor, Miss S Burdis.

Teaching Assistants

Students are taught through setting in Key Stages 3 and 4. Students with S.E.N. are supported in class by teaching assistants.
