Personal Tutors
College is all about transitions: from school into college and, almost as soon as you have settled here, from college to university or employment. All students are assigned a personal tutor who will be a guide and mentor, keeping an eye on your progress, offering support when necessary and encouraging you to take responsibility for your learning and your future. Tutor Group sessions take place once a week and
are used for one-to-one discussions and for whole group activities to support your wider development.
Student Reviews and Reports
Student reviews giving an account of progress in terms of attendance, effort, performance against target grade are issued to all students and their parents twice a year. Students will have, as a minimum, a personal review of progress with each of their subject teachers at least  ve times across a two year level 3 or A level/ BTEC programme. In addition, students will meet with their personal tutors three or four times a year for a progress check. There are three parents’ evenings across the two years when parents can meet with subject teachers to discuss academic progress.
Shaping Futures
Shaping Futures is the name we give to the programme of activities delivered in tutor group time and in a range of university style lectures and activities such as Safe Drive Stay Alive, cross-college debates, visiting speakers, and careers support. In total, Shaping Futures is designed to build your life skills, study skills, and social understanding. In this way we aim to broaden your education and help you develop as an independent, con dent and well-informed person who is ready to take your place as an adult in the wider world.
