Helping you succeed
Our student support and guidance systems are designed to ensure that our students settle well into college; are successful as a student and feel supported in college and in wider life at all times. Each student has a Personal Supervisor to support them directly. Achievable goals and targets are negotiated between the student and the personal tutor who will support and monitor them throughout their time at the college.
There are many key moments of decision during each student's time at college and we seek to support everybody at these times and we encourage the involvement of those who support the student at home.
Helping you to learn
In addition to well-appointed and resourced subject rooms, students can access other facilities across the college to support their learning.

The Learning Resource Centre
The Learning Resource Centre is an attractive, modern environment for independent study.
You will have access to computers linked to a high-speed network with full internet access for your research and coursework needs. The LRC stocks a wide range of learning materials; books, videos and DVDs and subscribes to a range of newspapers and magazines.
These resources and facilities are being expanded all the time to cater for your research and independent study needs. Help from experts is always on hand to deal with individual queries and problems.
In addition to the LRC, there are also computer suites throughout the college, allowing you to access IT facilities whenever you need them.
Study rooms are also located in most departments across the college.
Discussing your progress
In September the Principal and Senior Management Team are delighted to welcome all new parents to the college for an evening of information and discussion. The New Parents Evening provides an interesting and valuable opportunity to discuss;
- Feedback about your son or daughter's experience of their first half-term
- Any feedback or queries parents have
- An opportunity to give us feedback about how any of our processes could be improved
Each student works jointly with his or her teachers or Personal Supervisor to regularly monitor progress against target grades for each course being studied. Whilst parents and students can discuss progress with teachers at any stage during the year, there are two Parents' evenings which include the discussion of a written progress report. These parents' evenings will provisionally take place at the end of the Autumn term and again during the spring.
Information and invitations for these parents evenings will be sent ahead of the events on each occasion.
