Complaints Policy

We endeavour to provide a good, prompt and courteous service at all times. However, we recognise that there may be occasions when we fall short of this or when we contact you but don’t fully address an issue. We have a formal procedure to ensure that your complaint is dealt with in a prompt, polite and professional manner, and help us to improve our service for all staff and students.

What is a complaint
