Daily Routines

Starting college

Starting college is a big step for our students, but they quickly settle in with lots of support from our experienced staff.

There is a structured induction programme to ensure the students soon become accustomed to their new environment and the allocation of Personal Tutors and Learning Support Staff means that they know who to turn to for help.

Often parents are more anxious than the students about starting college so we are happy to take phone calls during this period to reassure you or at any point during the year.
