Online & Telephone help

Students: If you are being bullied or have other problems at, or outside of, College you should always talk to a trusted  adult FIRST if you can. For example: a parent/carer, your tutor,  your Year Head or a teacher.

The links on this page may be of help. Some are for parents so check. Try to gather information first, Get Connected, is good for this. Remember: the telephone lines are only for those young people who are in major difficulties and should not be used lightly.

Parents: the page includes links for adults/parents/carers
