We understand that there may be times when you would prefer to discuss confidential things with someone at College who isn’t a teacher or tutor. Your tutor may suggest that you talk to the College Counsellor, or you may decide for yourself to make an appointment.

Our College Counsellor Emma Holmes can be contacted by emailing

During this challenging times, students should be aware that they can access Childline, if they need to talk to someone outside of College about their problems, no matter how large or small.
