Wellbeing & Student Support

Here at Sir Christopher Academy we take the health and wellbeing of our VI form students very seriously and have a dedicated team focused on their support. We understand that with high expectations comes a degree of pressure and so we aim to support our students in school through our Life Skills program, student voice and student leadership team. However, we appreciate that students may need support from elsewhere.  To further support our students we have listed a number of local, regional and national services they can turn to if they need external advice.
