Parents and Carers

Our links with Parents and Carers are very important to us. On this page, we aim to provide relevant and current information for you about life at college. Additional support can be found in our Student Support Booklet 2021-2023

Parent/Carer Feedback – What we do well and what we can do better

We hope that your young person is happy at college and that we are doing all we can to ensure they are well supported and on track to reach their full potential.

It is important that you have the opportunity to give us your views on all aspects of college life. We are interested in hearing about what we do well, as well as any concerns you may have. We promise to listen carefully to any issues you raise and to do our very best to put things right or improve our practice where there is a need.

In the first instance you might like to contact your child’s Personal Tutor. You will find alternative contacts on our contact us page and you can be assured we will ensure that your feedback is forwarded to the person best suited to deal with it.

Parent Advantage

Parents and Carers can access information about their son or daughter through our Parent Advantage. The information includes timetable, attendance, exam timetable and student reviews. You should have received authentication codes for Parent Advantage via e-mail. If you have not had your codes, we probably don’t have an e-mail address for you – so contact us [email protected] and we will start the set up process for you.

Parents’ evening

Appointments can be booked here. Booking will open from 4pm on Wednesday 13th October.

Absence 

It is vitally important that students attend all lessons and tutorial sessions. However, if absence is necessary then we ask that either yourself or the student notifies us on each day of the absence via the ‘absence reporting system’ on Student or Parent Advantage. An acknowledgement email will be sent when we are notified of the absence.

Wisepay

Payments for trips, visits and resources can be made through Wisepay. Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions.
