Students meet with their guidance counsellor to discuss their plans for further and/or higher education and entering the world of work.
The guidance counsellors work with students to:
help them make appropriate subject choices;
prepare for interviews;
make applications and prepare personal statements;
complete interests assessments and psychometric testing so that the students are best informed when making these major life decisions at such a young age.
If members of staff feel that students would benefit from additional support, the counsellors are available to students who wish to discuss certain issues e.g.
- Academic issues (studying etc.)
- Socialising with others
- Personal issues (problems outside school etc.)
Students are welcome to make appointments to discuss whatever issues are troubling them or parents/guardians may contact the school and request an appointment for their daughter/son.
Working together with the NBSS teacher, we take smaller groups of students to develop their coping skills; deal with anxiety; offer solution-focused therapy; so that our students have tools to help them to move forward positively through difficulties.
