King George V College

The Student Support Service at KGV has helped many students to face and successfully overcome troubles in their lives. We know where to go to get you help and are here to support you and care for you through a crisis. We can help you contact official organisations, complete paperwork and forms and offer appropriate support. We’re here to listen and understand how you’re feeling and to offer advice.


We are committed to helping care leavers to come and study with us and there is a wide variety of support available. Our Student Services Officer (Alison Wiggins) is your dedicated Care Leaver contact and support worker. She can help you liaise with other agencies and with practical things like organising your time and budget.

You may not want, or need, any extra support at KGV. However, we think it’s important that you know who to contact and what services are available so you can make as informed a decision as possible.

If you are a Care Leaver, we ask that you indicate this when applying to the College, by ticking the relevant box on your application form. Doing so will let Alison know you are planning to study at KGV and she will make get in touch to talk about the support we can offer you whilst studying at the College.

If you would like to find out more about our Student Services, you can ring or text Alison on 07854284422 or email her on
