Student Support

Waddesdon has a well-deserved reputation for excellent pastoral care. Most issues are dealt with by form tutors or our experienced Heads of Year. If you are experiencing difficulties, we encourage you to talk to them.

In addition, we have a small counseling service. Sara Turner and Natalie McGourty are the School Counsellors.  They offer support and advice to students who may need someone to talk to.  A student can see a counsellor via their Head of Year or Mr Sturla, and they work closely with external agencies.
