As you may be aware there has been a galvanising movement across social media to support young people who have been the victim of historic sexual abuse and/or violence. We support our students to ensure that they are able to have their voice heard.
If you are a student who wishes to disclose such an event, then please approach one of our members of staff, a trusted adult that you feel comfortable to speak with, and we will always be there to listen.
Additionally, please visit the following Everyone's Invited website for more information and testimonies from young people across the UK.
