Information for Parents/Guardians

We value parents’/guardians’ support and want to work in partnership with you to maximise your son/daughter’s success on their course.

You can help us by:

  • Encouraging your son/daughter to be on time for class.
  • Ensuring that we have your correct contact details.
  • Attending the parents’ evenings during the year – these give you the opportunity to meet staff and check on your son/daughter’s progress.
  • Encouraging your son/daughter to tell us about any concerns they have regarding their studies and life at college.
  • Not taking your son/daughter out of college for family holidays during term time.
  • Ensuring your son/daughter wears their ID card to college each day. This is so that we can identify students at all times.

We believe that working together with parents/guardians is key to our students’ success.


We are very pleased to announce our new Parent Portal. This allows you instant access to your son/daughter’s progression, attendance and timetable.

The portal has been designed to improve home and college communication and to allow parents, carers and guardians to make a more informed view of their son or daughter’s progress at college, enabling meaningful conversations at home.

At the Parents’ Evenings we hope that you will be able to meet with your son/daughter’s tutor(s) so that you can see how they are progressing and discuss anything you would like to raise.  Appointments are generally from 5.30pm – 8.00pm and light refreshments will be provided.  Your son/daughter should make appointments direct with their tutor(s).

Your son/daughter is also welcome to attend with you.
