Information for parents

Moving from school to college is a big step, and that means for parents and guardians too. We try to make the transition as easy as possible. Students do best when there is a three-way relationship between parents, the student and the College.

Our 16-18 year old students are based at our Wandsworth and Merton sites. Each campus has excellent facilities including libraries, study areas and access to PCs and Macs. Every student has a personal tutor to support them, discuss their future plans and help set targets to achieve their goals. This personal tutor will be your main link to the College too.

Young people will take more responsibility for their own learning and academic progress when they study with us. Your support still plays a key role in helping them reach their maximum potential.
