Much of who we are and what we do is shaped by collaboration. We are always looking for ways to collaborate, and we have established a number of partnerships to enhance the Junior Guildhall student experience.

Student Welfare

The well-being of our students is a prerequisite for their success. Staff are required to undertake regular safeguarding training, which is part of our safeguarding culture at Junior Guildhall.
