Stress about school-work and other school issues

Please do not feel overwhelmed or upset by school-work or things that are happening at school without bringing this to the attention of a member of staff. We are here to help and support all our students and our pastoral team have an amazing approach that will focus on working through any issues with you. You can speak to your Crew Leader, a class teacher, your Head of Year, or our Safeguarding & Welfare Officer.

Don't keep it to yourself - problems are always better when they are shared.

If you feel you are being bullied or subject to harassment or abuse, you can use our confidential 'Report It' form (click on the logo below) if it's easier than speaking to someone straightaway. The form requires you to be logged-in to your school account so you might see a request to log-in before the form appears. 

Stress about home-life

If home worries are getting you down, please let us know as we are always happy to listen and support you. Speak to a member of staff or pop in and see our Safeguarding & Welfare Officer - she has an open door policy which means you can knock anytime you see her alone in her office.

The 'Not@TSS Report It' form is for student use and requires you to be logged in to your school Microsoft account. You might see a request to sign-in if you aren't already signed-in on the device you're using.
