Taking a lead role in your young person’s future

At Accrington and Rossendale College, we are dedicated to your young person’s success, which is why we also believe that your input is a vital to their success and we encourage all parents and guardians to play an active role in their young person’s learning.

The Parents’ Zone is for current parents of students already at the College, and aims to answer questions you may have about a range of issues, from finances and travel, to extracurricular opportunities for your young person, to how to report an absence.

Please explore this part of our website to find out how we will support your young person throughout their time with us, and how you can also help make their College experience the best it can be.
