Help us to get to know your child.

At Cheltenham Secondary College we really want to get to know your child so that we can provide the most appropriate environment for them. Since you know your child and their learning abilities so well, we would appreciate you spending a few minutes answering the following questions.

Please be frank with your answers as we will use your responses to plan for next year. It is so much better if we know some things about your child so that we can help them with organisation, making friends, coping with work or whatever else is required.
