The decision that your son or daughter will shortly make, concerning where they want to study after their GCSEs, is a significant one. As their parents you want them to be happy, secure and studying something that will give them the best opportunities for a brilliant career.
This is exactly what we want too.
Having been graded ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in our most recent Education and Skills Inspection, as well as ‘Outstanding’ in our Care Standards Inspection, we rank as one of the best colleges in the country. Our key means of measuring, or being measured – success, retention and achievement rates - all exceed the national benchmark and, in addition, over 90% of all lessons taught at the College have been graded as ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’. By choosing Hadlow College, your child will be benefiting from exceptional facilities, excellent teaching staff and a full and exciting social life.
However, our responsibility does not end here.
We recognise that, in addition to the academic standards you expect, you also want your child to develop into a well-rounded adult who is confident in their own abilities. Through our comprehensive enrichment programme, all of our students gain experience of different cultures to help them broaden their horizons and develop new skills. In the past these activities have included working with the local community on projects, attending workshops and raising money for charity. All of the activities are aimed at helping our students develop their personal and social skills.
We also offer support to students across a range of topics – from careers advice through to financial guidance and help with transport. Our friendly staff are always on hand to offer free and confidential assistance to ensure that your son or daughter is given the best opportunities to succeed.
We want the transition from school to college to be as smooth and successful as possible and we welcome your participation in this. This section contains some information which we hope you will find useful throughout the process.
