An Overview of the College Charter
What you can expect from us
The College Charter explains what you might expect to gain from the College and what we expect from you in return.
The introduction reads: "We aim to provide an environment in which you can best achieve your personal goals. At all stages in your College career you may expect full consideration to be given to your personal circumstances. We hope and expect that you will, in turn, behave responsibly and thoughtfully, and make your own contribution to the well-being of the College and the standing it has in the wider community."
The Charter also explains how and to whom you should look for help if you are experiencing difficulties. We take seriously any issues raised by students, parents and by others about any aspect of the College. If we are not able to solve the problem satisfactorily, the Charter explains how and to whom a grievance should be presented.
There is a formal complaints procedure, details of which can be obtained from the College Office.
