The transition from school to college can be very exciting and rewarding. Your child will be entering into an environment in which learning is celebrated and supplemented with practical application. They will be able to make friends with like-minded individuals, as well as take more responsibility for their own progress.
Our Parent's Guide will tell you about some of the support that will help students to get the most out of their time with us.
We encourage you to be involved with your son or daughter’s education. Your support will make a massive difference to your child achieving their potential, particularly with their GCSE English and maths qualifications. Achieving a good standard of English and maths is important for young people to compete in today's labour market. It is critical that your child takes their English and maths seriously and has good attendance in both subjects, otherwise they will struggle to progress to their next course level.
We do appreciate that for some parents, the idea of college can seem daunting. If you have any questions or simply want to find out more about the courses we offer, we would encourage you to come along to one of our Open Days (details of upcoming ones can be found here) or contact our Information Team to discuss any queries or concerns you may have.
