Student Welfare

We are all part of making The Henley College a welcoming, inspiring place where everyone can feel they belong, whatever the purpose of their visit. Discrimination or intimidating behaviour have no place here. If you experience any, we’ll take action. Speak to any member of staff, the team below, email or contact us on the Student Voice Reporting App.

We are here to be proactive and to help.

We take pride in acting with care and compassion, and everyone who visits or works here is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect. The college's HEART values exist to inspire high expectations and enterprise, and to require accountability, respect and teamwork, although please don’t assume that other students, visitors and staff will necessarily agree with your point of view.

Please be open, patient, and kind.

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.
