Parents Guide 2016/17

This Parent and Guardian Handbook aims to help you understand how the College works and the different study options available to your child.

It also explains how you can work with us to ensure that your son or daughter is successful and fulfils their potential. Education after 16 doesn’t just mean staying at school or sixth form full-time; your child can stay at school, go to college, or take up an apprenticeship.

What and where your child chooses to study upon leaving school is one of the biggest choices they will have to make, and we know that you will play an important role in this decision.

Middlesbrough College is a high performing college where students achieve academic success.

Last year, our students achieved an amazing 100% pass rate in 19 A Level subjects and more students than ever before achieved a triple distinction grade in their BTEC vocational qualifications.

Now that your child has applied to study with us, I would recommend that you encourage them to attend our taster sessions. This is the perfect opportunity to get a feel for the course they are interested in and what career opportunities it could lead to. Your child will receive an invitation in the post so watch out for this.
