A Student Support Guide: What to Do If You Are Worried

At St Martin's Ampleforth Prep School and Ampleforth College there are many people to whom you can turn if you need help. From amongst the staff you can turn to your Housemaster or Housemistress, Chaplain, Assistant Housemaster or Housemistress, Matron, Tutor, or anyone else on the staff. From the student body you can speak to one of the Monitors, a member of the Emmaus group or any of the other mentors.

There are other adults you can talk to outside of your House or even outside of school and their numbers are listed below. Your privacy will always be respected and the level of confidentiality available explained.

All of these people have had training from the College in appropriate ways to help students with difficulties.

The Infirmary is staffed 24 hours a day and you can make an appointment to see one of the school doctors. It may be that you feel you cannot talk with a member of family, staff or fellow student and you would prefer to talk with someone outside of the College. some contacts are listed overleaf.
