Welfare & Inclusion

We are a sixth form college that prides itself in offering specialist support services tailored to 16-19 year olds. We have a dedicated Welfare & Inclusion Centre to support you and your learning.



The Welfare and Safety of our students is paramount. We are committed to providing quality education that is holistic and supports the well-being of all our students.

The Welfare team consists of:

  • A team of Personal Mentors
  • A Counselling Service
  • The Welfare & Inclusion Manager

Students are invited to come in to discuss and receive support and advice on a range of personal and youth related matters, for example: emotional health, money, relationships, sexual health. Every student has been allocated a Personal Mentor who they can approach at any point for support. The name can be found on Student Dashboard. Students are also able to access a member of the Welfare team in the Welfare & Inclusion Centre if they have concerns for their personal safety and/or the safety of others.
