Support & Wellbeing

During their time at Cedars students will be faced with lots of challenges – both academic and personal.

We have created this area to direct them to a wide range of support available to them and their family. Students should take some time to explore the different links. Students should remember that they can always ask for help, advice and guidance through their form tutor, the Pastoral Support Team.
