Information for Parents and Carers

We place great importance on supporting young people through each stage of their College life. This includes helping them find the right course and the right level whether that is a full-time course or an apprenticeship.

As many of these options may not be available at school, this can open up new opportunities for them to develop and gain confidence.

  • We are a small, friendly College, easy to get to by bus and train.

  • Our students enjoy coming to the College. Our student satisfaction results continue to be extremely high year-on-year. 

  • We have tutors with years of practical industry experience, which means that students get an insider's look into the subject area. 

  • We offer lots of pastoral support and career guidance.

  • We have a six weekly review process to ensure that our students are on track at all stages. 

  • We offer lots of enrichment activities for students to get involved in which helps them develop and grow as individuals.

We encourage students and their parents or carers to come along to our Open Days, where they can find out about courses, meet tutors and get a 
feel for the college. Have a look at our Events page for our next Open Day.


If you have any concerns, queries or questions about your son’s or daughter’s education or about the education of a young person for whom you are caring, contact Student Services. You receive a report on their progress on a full-time course after the Autumn and Spring term finishes. For apprentices, progress reports will be sent to their employer but you can contact Student Services for an update.


Additional Learning Support

We are committed to supporting the learning of all students. Additional Learning Support (ALS) offers extra assistance if your son/daughter has needs that may affect their ability to study. This could be through practical, physical, mental health or mobility issues. Contact Lucy Veall for more information, and see our information on the Local Offer.



The College prioritises safeguarding. If you have a concern, raise it with any member of staff and we will deal appropriately and sensitively with the issue. More information can be found at Our Policies and Procedures.
