Support resources for parents
The decisions your child makes about their next steps and life beyond secondary school are very important. As their Parent or Carer, there is much you can do to help and support them with these decisions. There are many pathways available to young people and it is best to be fully informed about each one, in order to best guide which is the most appropriate for your child.
In the downloads section below, there are a series of Parent Guides for which we hold a licence. This licence allows our school community to access these guides for free. These provide really useful information, advice and guidance for parents of Year 11s at this key transition change. These are designed to help parents and carers to support their children with some of these decisions and these can be found in the downloads section below.
In addition to these licenced guides, the company also provide a series of free downloads as well. Please click the links here to be taken to these additional resources:
