Student Support at Chorlton High School

We have a dedicated Safeguarding Team at the school whose job it is to make sure that our children feel safe and are able to thrive and access fully their educational opportunities. 

We offer support to students and their families for a whole range of things and we work closely with other support services and agencies, to whom we can make referrals and gain advice on particular issues.
