How We Support You

A great deal of thought, commitment and resources have been invested in providing a comprehensive programme of support and personal development for every student at Carmel.

This flexible programme aims to provide you with guidance and support at all times and involves one-to-one and group activities.

The programme covers several areas, including Ethics & Values, Careers Guidance, a wide range of Enrichment opportunities and a system for individual student reviewing and target setting. The programme also enables you to acquire qualifications in General Studies at Advanced Level. Critical Thinking is also offered as an additional subject to challenge those students of a high academic ability.

At Carmel, your personal, as well as your academic qualities, are highly valued. Therefore your Personal Achievement Tutor will monitor both your academic and personal progress and you can make an appointment at any time for guidance and support. The Personal Achievement Tutor is also the link between the college and parents. Consultation Evenings are regular features of the college service to students and parents. Reviews take place twice a year for each year group. The review reports are available on our Connect site via each student's Individual Learning Plan.
