Support for Parents

We’re delighted to share The Parents’ Guide to programme with our parents. The Parents’ Guide to provides specialist guides and resources for parents about student’s options after Sixth Form, with tips on what parents can do at home to support their teens with studies, health and mental wellbeing. The interactive, online guides allow parents to find all the information they need in one place, they’re written in a friendly, approachable style and include links to reliable sources for further information.

At least one guide per term will be emailed to our parents including:

Helping parents feel confident talking to their teen about choices for the future:

For parents of teens aged between 16 and 19… with everything they need to know about options after sixth form AND what they can do at home to improve their teen’s wellbeing and help them with their studies.

All the articles are written with parents in mind and can be filtered by area of interest listed below. There’s also a search tool to find something specific:

  • Options at 16
  • Options at 18
  • Personal Growth
  • Wellbeing

Preparation is key to success, so it’s a good idea to plan ahead. There’s a lot to keep on top of throughout Years 12-13, so the “What’s next” tab will always contain information that’s especially relevant to parents at certain times of the year.
