Parental Information

Parental Contributions

Students are expected to have all the necessary equipment and stationery for the subjects they have chosen to
study. Textbooks and relevant equipment for each subject are loaned for the duration of the college courses.
A non refundable financial contribution of £65 is requested to cover two years of resources once a student has enrolled. A further contribution is asked for if a student is studying Fine Art and/or 3D Art to cover the cost of some specialist equipment. An additional subject or £35 if studying both Fine and 3D Art.
To ensure a smooth start to the term these financial contributions are requested at enrolment in August.
Cheques can be payable to 'Blessed Thomas Holford Catholic College'. Online payments will also be available at the start of term in September.

If your circumstances make this payment difficult please contact the Head of Sixth Form to discuss an alternative  payment plan

Communication with Parents

We believe maintaining excellent communication with parents is crucial in supporting each student to achieve his or her potential. The Sixth Form website is a great way for parents to keep up to date with news and events going on in the Sixth Form. In addition, parents and students are encouraged to follow the Sixth Form on twitter @bthcc_sixthform
At various points in the year an academic progress report will be sent home outlining the current performance grades for each student. In addition, parents will receive an annual report that will contain a more detailed overview of the achievements of each student and targets to help aid further progress. A parents' evening will take place twice a year to monitor progress and ensure parents are up to date with reports.
We endeavour to assist parents in helping their child to succeed and as such, the home-college communication is a two way process. If there are any circumstances, which might affect your child's learning, we would appreciate you contacting their Sixth Form Tutor so we can help support your child.
