Emotional support for teenagers has always been important but never more so than in our present age. There is more pressure now than ever before on young people, both socially and academically, so support in school as well as at home is vital. We know that all students will have problems, difficulties and worries from time to time as part of normal life – and we are here to help.
Oxford High’s pastoral care system supports girls throughout their time in school and form tutors, heads of year or the school nurse can usually deal with most matters of concern. The Head and Deputy Head also make themselves easily accessible as a further port of call for advice and assistance.
However, we recognise that there may occasionally be circumstances when it might be preferable to talk to someone who is a specialist in counselling. Our School Counsellors, Hannah Fenton and Lucy Healey, are very experienced in their field and girls find it very easy to talk to them. They meet pupils in the health centre on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and can be contacted via a tutor or the school nurse, or emailed via email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
