Why Choose College?
Choosing to study at college means your child has access to a wide range of courses, specialist equipment and resources and dedicated lecturers who have professional experience in their field.
It’s our aim to give every student the best chance of success and our excellent results support this.
All students have a dedicated personal tutor who oversees their whole programme and provides a communication link with parents during the academic year. You will have regular parents evenings, telephone contact and up-to-date information shared on our online student portal.
As there are clear links between attendance at college and success, parents are also notified via text message when their child is absent from college.
If your child plans to progress to university, their personal tutor will support them through UCAS (the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) where extensive support and guidance is provided to help you child gain a place at their first choice university.
In addition, we have expert UCAS staff on site, along with experts in Higher Education funding who can help students with their applications, wherever they choose to study.
Students who are progressing internally on any of our vocational courses are fully supported with their next steps onto higher vocational levels, apprenticeships or into employment. The college has built an extensive network of employers and organisations that provide a number of opportunities for our students to apply for and progress into including, but not limited to, engineering, health and care, catering and hospitality, and construction.
