Working in partnership with parents

Here at Newbury College we see parents and guardians as partners in the education and training process and we encourage them to play a role in helping students progress towards achieving their goals.

We, like you, want our students to succeed whilst studying here. We value hard work, regular and punctual attendance, and the timely completion of course work. If you have any concerns about these or any part of your son/daughter/ward’s education, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Parents and guardians are invited to attend Progress Review evenings, which take place three times a year to coincide with the issue of student reports. Parents and guardians are notified when these take place and are invited to book appointments with course tutors.

If your son/daughter/ward has booked an appointment with our Information, Advice and Guidance team prior to making an application, it is quite common for parents to accompany them to the appointment. 

We publish an ‘Information Services and Student Support’ booklet that will help parents and guardians understand more about college life. To obtain a copy of this booklet, or to come in for a visit, please contact the Information Services team on 01635 845000.
