Guidance for Parents
Guiding your child through key decisions making points can be challenging. The government have produced a really good guide that will help you. Although aimed at female students it contains information about qualifications, career paths, and so on that will be helpful to all. It is particularly aimed and useful for students approaching Year 9, Year 11 and through the Sixth Form. Mrs Semlyen is always available to give guidance to parents, either by email, via the telephone or in a guidance interview.
Plotr for Parents is a really useful site filled with useful information and links to other sites.
When your daughter or son are considering applying to university it can be a stressful time for parents. There are two evening events aimed at keeping parents informed. The first is held in February of Year 12 and is called Future Evening. It will help guide parents through the process and also includes information on a range of options for the future. The UCAS Guide for Parents covers all aspects of the application process including shortlisting universities, open days and the personal statement.
