Personal tutors actively seek to encourage the individual, offering support to ensure that any problems are dealt with swiftly and effectively.

The pastoral care service ensures that the transition from school to college for the student is a smooth process and gives them confidence to settle into the college environment quickly, developing self-esteem and confidence.
