Student Support

Welcome to Student Support, we are based up in Hill Block and are a team of four. 

SS

  • Mr Matt Whiddett - Student Support Manager
  • Mrs Alyson Martin - Deputy Student Support Manager
  • Mrs Louisa Bufton - Student Support Assistant
  • Mrs Abi Hughes - Student Support Assistant

We are here to offer a quiet, calm, safe space for all of our students. We provide 1:1 targeted support for behaviour, social & emotional mental health and wellbeing. We also support students with group workshops.

We also facilitate referrals to a range of outside agencies and have two counsellors that offer 6 weeks of weekly therapy.

“I think student support will definitely improve your mind, your mood and your motivation.”

“The staff are very supportive and caring.”

“You’ll never feel judged or criticised and you’ll always feel safe and comfortable.”

“There is always a positive atmosphere ad it is comforting to have a safe space where I don’t feel judged.”

  "Student support has been helpful to me and I’m so much more confident in what I do, thank you."
