We host regular visits from welfare dogs, from the organisation Pets As Therapy. Ordinarily they will be available for students in the Library on Wednesday and Friday lunchtimes. They may also go for walks around the school site at times. Students have been told in Assemblies how to approach the dogs carefully and calmly, asking permission to stroke them. They will always have their owner with them as well as supporting staff and Sixth Form students. The dogs bring a sense of well-being and positive energy to the school community.
