Anyone in Cheshire West, Cheshire East or Wirral can text BLUE to 85258, for immediate support.

Exam stress even when there are no exams?

With a second year of cancelled exams, The Charlie Waller Trust have provided some resources for dealing with the mixed emotions that this may have stirred up for the young people it impacts.


They also have some useful resources for both parents and teachers to help promote a healthy approach to dealing with GCSEs. 

All resources can be found at The Charlie Waller Trust website here.
