My name is Miss Clancy and I am the Head of Year for sixth form. I have worked at St Bernard’s since 2011 and have supported various year groups as Head of Year alongside teaching Mathematics. My role is to support students in sixth form to achieve their best by listening to you and liaising with your teachers as well as the Senior Leadership Team to create an environment that provides you with the best opportunities to prepare you for the future. I can also arrange specific support in school such as career advice, a meeting with a Learning Coach/Mentor or meetings with our school counsellor where appropriate.
My name is Mrs Brook and I am the Learning Coach in school. I have been at St Bernard's since 2010 and I work predominantly with GCSE and A Level students. My role in school is to provide strategies and support with organisation and study skills to help create confident and independent learners. I work with students on a 1:1 basis or in small groups and as part of the pastoral team I work closely with Heads of Year and teachers to help support the students I work with more effectively. I also help students with motivation, their general well-being and many other issues they may have. I look forward to meeting you all and working with you.
Hello! My name is Mrs Davies. I am St. Bernard’s Careers Co-ordinator and responsible for Careers Education and Guidance throughout the school. I co-ordinate the Careers provision within the school, I provide careers information, advice and guidance to students, and co-ordinate Work Experience. Students are able to see me throughout the school day. Most students have an individual careers interview especially those in years 9-13. The careers interview can cover anything and students can see me as often as they like until they feel happy about their academic [GCSE and A Level subjects], study [Further and Higher Education] and career and employment choices. My office is in the Dining Hall Extension at the top of the stairs. I look forward to meeting and working with you.
School Counsellor – We have a school counsellor for students to meet with if they would like to, they should speak to Miss Clancy for a referral.
Our subject teachers are very knowledgeable and supportive, students can approach them for help outside of lessons in person or by using the school email system as well as during lesson time.
