For Secondary schools


Barnardo's has a successful track record of delivering an extensive range of programmes and interventions that improve the attendance of pupils in secondary schools, increases engagement and communication, raises pupil motivation, and increases achievements. Our work in secondary schools successfully enables young people to be more self aware and develop strategies for improving their behaviour, reducing risk taking behaviour, reducing offending and anti-social behaviour, and identifying and avoiding abusive relationships.

It was the best thing I ever did.

We've also provided a full list of our current services we provide for middle and secondary schools with details of each of our services, their costs and specific contact details so you can call the right person directly.
