For Parents

Our Philosophy is that all students should be supported on a personal and individual basis in terms of both academic progress and general welfare and well-being. It is our aim to ensure that all students not only achieve their educational goals but that they become thoughtful and active citizens, leaving College with confidence, commitment and optimism for the future.

Coming to College is a big change from school life and we all work hard to help students adjust to life at College and the learning styles of their new courses. In preparation for their life beyond College students are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning and personal development. A network of staff ensure that all students are supported and are performing to the best of their ability.

Financial help

Alongside this ongoing support, it is important to have the involvement of parents and guardians. Once your son/daughter is a student at College you will have access to a Parents Portal which will enable you to keep up to date with information. We will also send you information by post and email. 

You can help us in several ways: 

  • Phone college in the case of absences and don’t go away on holiday in term time.
  • Read reports and come to Parents’ Evenings
  • Help your student to get the balance between social life; paid work and study
  • Encourage your student to familiarise themselves with the exams procedure

Show an interest but learn to stand back.
