School Counsellor:
As an academy we are very lucky to have a counsellor who can help you with any problems you may have regarding anything from relationships to coping with stress. Appointments can be made confidentially via your tutor, year head or at MLT.

School Nurse:
The school nurse is in school on Thursdays and has an office on the MLT corridor. She is available for advice and support on a range of issues relating to both mental and physical health and well being. She is available on appointment basis and also for drop in sessions.

Careers Advice:
Students may make appointments with our Careers Advisor Jane Sutton via their tutor, year head or at the Laureates Reception, MLT or Oaks Office. She will be available to discuss all aspects of careers advice ranging from career ideas to applying for apprenticeships and opportunities within the local area, nationally and globally.

Financial Support:
The Bursary Scheme provides financial support for students in the sixth form when financial circumstances are a barrier to learning. It can be used for transport, trips, books or any other resources required to enable students to continue in education after year 11 . For eligibility and more details contact Main Reception at Bosworth Academy.
