You will have a personal tutor who, in most cases, will also teach you, so you will get to know him or her well. At least once a week you will meet for a Personal Learning & Development (PLD) session which will focus on one-to-one sessions about you and your studies and is supported by presentations and workshops. Your tutor will help you settle into College life, to achieve your academic potential and help you plan for your future.
In Partnership with Parents
We know that a close relationship between College, you and your parents has a very positive effect on your performance. The College holds regular parents' evenings, contacts parents if we cannot resolve problems satisfactorily with you, and encourages parents to contact us if they have concerns. We even have a whole section on this website just for parents!
