Parent/Carer Hub

Welcome to the Parent/Carer Hub.

At HSDC, we understand that supporting your child as they move from school to college can be a challenge and we want to help make this process as smooth as possible for everyone
involved. We believe that a close partnership between us and our students’ parents/carers can have a very positive effect on the students’ overall performance at College. Here you’ll find some information that might be helpful to you, either as a parent/carer with a child already studying at HSDC or with a child considering applying here.

The college is a bright and happy place, everyone is kind and friendly to each other.

Megan Hall, A Level student

My experience at the college has been really good, it’s been really rewarding, all the lecturers were so lovely and supportive there’s no way I could have done it without them - the teaching has been outstanding.

Lucie Brooks, A Level student

College is definitely worth all the effort you put in, you get to meet lots of different people and it’s amazing.
