Tracking your child's progress
We use a system called ProMonitor to record information about your child such as attendance, punctuality, target grades and tutor-written reports.
As a parent, you have access to this system, allowing you to track your child’s progress during their time with us.
It will also allow you to better understand your son or daughter’s strengths, weaknesses and areas for development.
