Information and Guidance

We aim for our Students' time at the Academy to be a period of their lives that they remember fondly, well after they leave. However, we know that sometimes issues arise that they might need some help dealing with. As well our team of Staff at the Academy who are always available to help deal with whatever is troubling a student, there are also a range of external agencies who can provide help and advice. Some useful contacts are listed below.
