The Parents' Guide
It’s the holidays, and before you head off why not download our free summer guide to share with your parents/carers before the end of term? 2021 has been another tricky year so far and students have experienced yet more disruption to their studies. As a parent, it’s hard not to worry that the lack of face-to-face schooling has set them back and their thoughts are probably turning to what can be done during the summer to help their teens catch up. Our advice is not to dwell on what they may have missed but focus on using the summer to boost their experience to help them prepare for the autumn term and future applications they will want to make. This guide is packed with ideas.
