Building a positive home/school relationship is essential to our students’ success in the Sixth Form. Parent/carer support continues to be an important contributor to your child’s success at this stage of their education, even though the emphasis is on developing the independent learning skills that will enable them to achieve their future career aspirations.

On this page you will find information about our policies and procedures, copies of letters and other important communications needed to be fully informed about what is happening in the Sixth Form. We greatly value the continuing parental support we receive and we actively foster regular contact between school and home – a relationship essential in ensuring all our students achieve their full potential during their time with us.

We have recorded our full parent information evening presentation for you to view on this page.
