Equality and diversity

We are committed to providing an environment free from discrimination, bullying, harassment or victimisation, where all members of our community are treated with respect and dignity. We aim to create a culture of diversity and inclusivity within our community, providing a dynamic working and learning environment, where all members are valued for their contribution and individuality.


The Chaplaincy team provides friendship, support, pastoral care and advice on religious matters to students and staff, regardless of any particular belief or absence of belief.
