PARENTS OF CURRENT STUDENTS

PARENT & CARER INFORMATION

We are proud of the achievements of our young people here at the City of Stoke on Trent Sixth Form College. A significant majority of our young people progress to a wide range of university courses, including Oxbridge, Russell Group, Sutton 30 and local universities, whilst others choose to progress to apprenticeships, including prestigious degree apprenticeships, or directly into employment; we work hard to support every young person, whichever progression route is right for them.

The Sixth Form College is a very different learning environment from secondary school. We support our young people to take responsibility for their own behaviour and progress, in order to make the successful transition into independent learners. Support is offered by a range of staff at the College, but your role as parent/carer is just as important; we recognise that positive parental/carer interaction has a positive impact on a young person’s learning, behaviour, attendance and progress.

The College values the contribution that parents/carers can make towards their young person’s education and would like to work in partnership with you to ensure that all of our young people can fulfil their potential. Therefore, we actively encourage parents/carers to contact the College and interact with teaching staff in order to ensure that all of our young people have the opportunity to be successful during their time with us.

We look forward to working with you.

Please take some time to read through the FAQs below, and do not hesitate to contact the College via the on-line contact form or telephone, if you would like more information.
