Information for Parents

Here at Norton College, we offer students a fresh start: a clean slate, guaranteed. A student’s history is not relevant to how they will be treated at Norton and any previous poor behaviour will never be referred to. We treat our students as we see them.

We want to help young people to turn their lives around. Our unique teaching methods have been proven to bring about positive changes in our students. See our case studies for examples of students that have achieved success through Norton College.

Please contact us by phone or email. Visits to the college for prospective students will be arranged as part of our admissions process and in conjunction with referrals from Local Authorities.

We strive to keep open lines of communication with all our parents so that we can respond quickly and effectively to any issues with a student’s education. 

We will endeavour to keep you regularly updated with your child’s progress and, in particular, their successes and accomplishments so that you can share their triumph and encourage them to fulfil their potential.
