Find It Out Centre

If you are aged 13-25 you can drop in to a Find It Out centre to get advice and information. If you want to talk to someone in confidence you just need to make an appointment. If you have an issue that they can’t help you with, they will try to put you in touch with somebody who can.

If you’re 11-19 years old you can text your school nurse on 07480 635424 for confidential advice and support. They can help students with all kinds of things like relationships, bullying, mental health, drugs and alcohol, healthy eating, self harm, smoking.

The School Nurses working hours are Monday to Friday from 9am to 4:30pm, including throughout the Summer holidays. Your message will be seen during those hours after which they respond most quickly to messages that need urgent attention and they aim to respond to all messages within 24 hours, Monday to Friday.
