School Counselling Service
The school has a Counsellor who works Monday - Thursday and a part time counsellor one day a week plus several volunteer counsellors who come into school one morning each week. Students meet their counsellor once a week following a mutual agreement between students, parents and the school. There is also a facility for pupils to refer themselves to a counsellor, in which case parents would not necessarily be informed. Our Counsellor is qualified and a member of the BACP and has been a member of Tring School for a number of years.
