For Parents

Will Easton & Otley College be the right choice for my child?

A Further Education college like Easton & Otley is very different from a school environment.Students have to learn to be more responsible for their work, time, and progress this can sometimes be a difficult transition.As a college we work hard to help your child settle in and adapt but students who do best are those whose parents/carer are involved, take an interest at home and provide support- even if it’s just checking the days and times they have to attend college.


Further Information

With the right support most student flourish in this environment, however should they have any problems we have a dedicated student support team who are always available on each campus. For more details see the Student Centre pages.

Attendance

Attendance is a key metric of success and research has found a link between high attendance and high success rates.  As a college we expect 100% attendance rates for our students. If the student is under 19 years of age we will contact you should we have concerns over attendance.
