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.

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

I overcame a couple of barriers by working really hard to get the top grades. My experience was really good, with the course and the lecturers, the residentials and activities, together it was all really good. I had really great teaching support, I could always go to the lecturers and speak to them if I needed to.

David Stenning, Public Services student

I would say it’s a college that really balances academia with fun, there is lots of extra-curricular stuff that you can get involved in. It has a really good work/life balance.

Laura Hagedorn, A Level student
