Parent Hub

Parent Hub

We want to develop strong, collaborative relationships with the parents and guardians of our students. We know that leaving school can be a daunting prospect with big decisions to make.

We hope that the information here is useful in helping you at this important time. For parents and guardians of our current students, we have provided information to keep you informed about news and events and other information you need to know.


We believe passionately in the power of education to enrich lives, raise aspirations and create prosperity for the individuals we teach. We provide students with an inspiring curriculum that develops the skills, knowledge and behaviours they need to be successful in their lives and future careers. Crucial to fulfilling our mission, is creating a supportive, open culture where everyone feels valued and is motivated to go that extra mile.

Student satisfaction and national rankings

We are in the top 25% best colleges in the country for results; and the 5th best in the country for student satisfaction according to the 2019 national survey of Further Education college students.
