Parents' Guide


Helping your son or daughter make a decision about their education is an important step.

These webpages will help. They give an insight into life at The College and explain how your son or daughter will progress while with us. If there is anything we’ve missed, please give us a call on 01202 205205 or use the ‘live chat’ function.

We’ve tried to keep jargon to a minimum, but sometimes it just can’t be avoided. So if you see a term you're not sure about, have a look at our jargon buster here.
