Information for Parents

Our Commitment to You

The College’s very successful framework for supporting students is underpinned by the expectation that students will accept responsibility for their own learning and academic progress. This means that we try, wherever possible, to resolve problems or concerns with the student involved rather than with the parents/guardians in the first instance. Nevertheless, there is a continuing and important role for parents/guardians to play in supporting students and we will liaise with you accordingly.

You can expect the College to provide:

  • A personal link with the College via your daughter’s or son’s Personal Tutor and Curriculum Area Manager
  • An opportunity to meet the Principal and Personal Tutors at the Information Evening for parents of new students early in the Autumn Term
  • Consultation opportunities with both personal and subject tutors to discuss your daughter’s or son’s progress
  • A prompt response to any query or concern
  • Contact from the College should we become concerned about attendance or progress
  • An appointment with the Personal Tutor or Curriculum Area Manager if either you or we need to discuss an aspect of your daughter’s or son’s progress
  • Representation on the College’s Governing Body through the Parent Governors
  • For your information, all information used, circulated and stored by the College will be compliant with Data Protection and Freedom of Information legislation.

I have received a lot of support and guidance from my Tutor during tutorials including my progression options, which I found helpful as I could ask about any queries that I had which gave me peace of mind when I was unsure about something.
