Keeping you informed

Through the year registered parents and guardians (Next of Kin) of current learners will receive important College announcements to the NOK email address provided by their young person, including information about Parent and Guardian Liaison Events, notifications of progress reports, exams news, upcoming key deadlines such as UCAS, and much more. We recommend checking this email address regularly in order to keep up to date.  

Should you miss the latest email, or wish to refer back to information, please visit the archive of newsletters for this academic year.

Our Parent Portal

By the end of September we will send parents and guardians a letter inviting them to register for our Parent Portal – an online space where parents and guardians can track the progress of their young person at College. You will be able to see what course(s) your young person is enrolled on, along with attendance data, timetables, progress reports and tutor contact information.

Please register using the email address your young person has recorded for you as Next of Kin on their electronic individual learning plan (eILP).
