Ear'Listening Ear' Drop-In. HGA is OPEN During The Summer!

Come to our 'Listening Ear' drop-in sessions, open to all families and students (primary, secondary and Sixth Form), on Wednesdays during the Summer holiday.

We're here every Wednesday from 27th July - 31 August, 9am to 1pm in the secondary school building.

It means we're OPEN during the break if you need to speak to someone. Come along and meet some staff for support, a chat and maybe a cup of tea!

The idea behind Listening Ear is that we have staff on hand to support our students and their families throughout the school holidays.

This is a safe place for anyone to access support or just have a chat if they are feeling a bit isolated maybe. We will have an experienced member of staff who can support them.

The project is based in our secondary building so please do drop in.
