There is a very friendly atmosphere at the Study Centre – many of our students say that it is like belonging to a big family.
During your time with us, you will receive a high level of personal support:
You and all the other students in your Form Group will meet twice a day, together with your Form Tutor.
Your Form Tutor will meet you individually to talk about your studies and any concerns you might have.
Once each term you will have an individual meeting with Helen, the Study Centre Director. She will discuss your work over the term and check you are making good progress.
At the beginning of the week, you and all the other students will meet for an assembly with Helen, the Director. This is an opportunity for you as a student to discuss topics of interest from your own country.
How we communicate with parents
We welcome regular communication with parents and aim to keep them well informed of students' progress, well-being and attendance.
At the beginning of the school year, parents will receive a letter informing them about how their child has settled in. Every term, parents will also receive detailed end of term report and feedback on practice examination results.
You must have a guardian if you are under the age of 16 when you start with us.
A guardian is an adult who agrees to be responsible for you if there is ever an emergency at a time when the College is closed. He or she must live permanently in the UK and be 25 years old or above.
Your guardian could be a relative or family friend, or somebody organised by a guardianship agency.
We strongly advise students to have a guardian even if they are over 16, and we will provide you with a list of possible guardianship agencies if you wish.
