Letter from Guidance Department

Dear Students,

I hope you are well and keeping safe.

This is a challenging time for us all. It is important that we do our best to maintain a regular routine to support our health and wellbeing and future goals. Even though you are not currently physically in the college, you still have course work to complete, assignments to hand in and future educational/career goals to fulfil.  It is the role of the Guidance department to support you as much as it can in relation to your course work and college experience.  I would like to remind you that we are available to be contacted by email. 

My email is and Denise is If you need to talk to us regarding anxiety with your course work or if you need guidance or help with CAO/UCAS applications  please email us your telephone number and we can telephone you back as soon as possible. 

In the meantime I would like to encourage you all to maintain a sense of routine, create a separate study space (if you can), take regular breaks, talk to others through social media/phone and most importantly in relation to your course work/experience, stay connected with some of your friends in college, with your teachers and with the guidance department.

Stay safe and well

Anne Walding & Denise Ward
