Student Support

The system of pastoral care and student support at Brampton College is comprehensive. The College offers individual support to any student who may need additional help or guidance regarding their learning, including advice and strategies for organisation, time management, study skills and exam nerves. The Head of Learning Support is available to speak with parents, liaise with teachers and specialists, but most importantly welcomes drop-ins and regular sessions with students themselves throughout the week. In addition, the College has specialist staff including an experienced Counsellor and Educational Psychologist who are available should these services be needed.

Study skills are supported by both the Personal Tutor and individual subject teachers, who can offer specialised subject help for improving study techniques. In some cases, the Learning Support team may work with a student in addition to this, to help students further develop their exam technique, plan revision and support their overall wellbeing at the College.

The needs of students with SEN are met through the provision of differentiated teaching, evaluation of interventions throughout the year and formal exam access arrangements (where appropriate). All teachers are provided with a summary of a student’s individual needs at the start of their course and therefore, disclosure of any learning or mental health concern is necessary to ensure the College is able to effectively support the student throughout their course.

If you have any questions regarding support at Brampton College, please contact Claire Morley:
