There are two Student Services offices. The main office is located between the library and the PAC/Music room, near the main school reception. Here you will find the Student Services Co-ordinator, the School Nurse, the School Psychologist and the Student Services Officer.Students in year 7 and 8 have an additional support area situated by the Bike racks. Here you will find the Lower school Student Services Officer. If this is unattended please make your way up to the main Student Services Office. In addition to this you can access help from the year coordinators, the youth education officer, the girls academy coordinator and the school chaplain.

First Aid & Illness
If you are not well in lesson, you must let your teacher know and they will give you a card to be excused from the lesson and come down to Student Services. You will then be assessed by a member of staff who will decide whether you are well enough to stay in school or need to be picked up and taken home. If you go home you must sign out of school in the signing/in out book. Sometimes pupils feel better after a little rest and a drink of water and can then return to class.
If you cannot remember what class you have next or where you should be then please come to Student Services. We will help you get to class and print off a new timetable for you. It is also possible to print your own timetable from the school Internet (within school).
The School Nurse is able to store any medication that you may need whilst at school. If you have recently been prescribed any medication and, or the Nurse is unaware of any health concerns you have please drop by and discuss it with us. If you have any questions about your or your families health we are always happy to talk with you and answer your questions. If we are unable to answer your questions we will always help you find and speak to someone who can.
Late for school & Signing in & Out
If you are late into school you must sign in at the front office. You must also bring a note into school to explain why you are late.
If pupils need to leave school for any reason e.g. a dentist appointment, parents must send a letter into school explaining the reason you need to leave. This note needs to be brought to the front office when you are leaving. If you have forgotten or misplaced your letter we will phone home to confirm your reason for singing in or out of school.
Any lost property left in and around school is held by the School Chaplain. If there is a name on a lost item of clothing, we do try to reunite it with the owner. The School Chaplains Office is next to the Upper School Canteen. Occasionally Lost property is handed to the Front Office on the same day it has been lost. If the School Chaplain does not have your item it may be worth asking at the front office also.
