Support for Students
Here at Amery Hill we strive for all our students to feel supported in developing the skills to be happy, resilient and emotionally strong to succeed within school and beyond. At times everyone needs a little help along the way to achieve this, so we hope the information you find in the sections below will help steer you in the right direction. Remember, you can always talk to a trusted adult within School if you are worried about anything. It is ok, not to be ok.
