As part of our proud commitment and celebration of a diverse school community that embraces all identities, including sexuality and genders, our LGBT Group was set up.
The LGBT group is open to any student at Woodrush and provides a proactive social space, support network and positive awareness group for students.So, whether it is a desire to have a friendly, safe and understanding group of peers to meet with; or if you would like to meet with other students and adults who share some insight into challenges for young people expressing their identity, or if you would simply like to meet new friends, then the LGBT student group is a perfect place.
The LGBT groups will always be open to all and welcomes everyone.
If you have any questions about the LGBT group, please speak to Mrs Peters or Miss Robbins.
