Welcome to the Student Support Centre

At St. Mary’s the SSC offers several avenues of support to help students achieve their full potential;

  • Learning Mentor
  • CIAG (Careers)
  • Study & Classroom Areas
  • Computer Facilities
  • Library



IAG (Careers) & Learning Mentoring

The SSC contains a dedicated Careers area where students can browse college/university prospectuses as well as speak to our careers advisor about work experience or placements. Our Learning Mentor undertakes 1 on 1 sessions with targeted students to tackle individual present and future learning needs through dialogue, feedback and support.


Library and Study Areas

The SSC library is fully stocked with a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books which students can loan out to read at home. Laptop computers with internet access are available for students to use to complete homework assignments. Around the SSC there are several study clusters where students may read, complete homework or use one of our laptop computers. Throughout the year we run reading schemes and other initiatives to encourage students to come to the SSC and use the space to help them achieve their potential
