Help and Support for Students

If you need help or information there is always someone to talk to here at the Academy or at the end of a phone to point you in the right direction.  


The counselling service at Salford City Academy supports students from all year groups and helps with a huge range of issues faced by young people including anxiety, eating disorders, coping with change, bereavement and many more problems. 

There is a drop-in on Tuesday lunchtimes offering an opportunity for students who are worried about themselves or their friends to speak with the academy's counsellor, Gill Bell.

Alternatively, if you're worried about about someone and thinking counselling may help, e-mail:
