Information for Parents & Guardians of Pre-Degree Students

At Plymouth College of Art we believe in high quality education for life in contemporary arts practice, as the creative catalyst for personal, professional and cultural transformation. We place the aspirations and support needs of every student at the very heart of our creative enterprise.

Our pre-degree campuses at Palace Court and Palace Studios are home to five hundred 16-19 year-old students studying Extended Diploma, Foundation Diplomas and the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) in arts, performing arts, crafts, design and media, and it is here that we provide a safe and creative environment, where your child/young person can grow, learn new skills, and become more independent.

We are committed to supporting your child/young person on every step of their creative journey. Below you will find information about our Parents' & Guardians' Evenings, our Code of Conduct and Attendance, Safeguarding and key dates for your diary.
