Who is my Disability Adviser or DASS Caseworker?

You will be allocated a DASS case worker and Assistant Adviser, who will work together to coordinate your support. They are usually allocated on the basis of the School that you're in. The Head of DASS is Lyle Millard who can be contacted via our administration team. Louise Pepper-Kernot (Deputy Head of DASS) manages the adviser team, her contact details are below.

Talk to our administration team for general queries, or to arrange a Quick Query appointment.
