What if my son or daughter doesn’t do as well as expected with their GCSEs?
When your son or daughter comes into College to enrol, we will sit down with them and look at their results. If they have not achieved the entry requirements for the study programme they applied to, we will discuss alternative choices with them and offer appropriate Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG). Regardless we will have a course for every student no matter the grades.
What happens if my son/daughter requires additional learning support?
All students complete an initial assessment before starting their programme, which will help us, and them, identify any learning support requirements they might have. If you are able to make us aware of any additional support requirements prior to them starting College, this will enable us to put any support measures or specialist equipment in place from their first day.
How can I be sure my son or daughter is doing enough work to pass the course?
Throughout the year we’ll be holding progression evenings, informing parents of individual students progress. These events will provide students and parents an opportunity to engage with our tutors and ask questions around grades and behaviour. A calendar will be circulated among parents and students throughout the year.
