Information for parents
Supporting your Child:
As parents and carers, you have a major influence on your child’s decisions about their future education and careers choices. You are expected to have all the answers, but it can be a struggle to keep up with the latest options out there.
As a parent of a student at Dover Grammar School for girls you can have a Parental login to the school’s main careers website Unifrog.com. Here you will be able to use the same tools that are available to your young people so you can understand better what options they have and how you can help them. Links will be sent out on ParentMail at the start of each year or please contact the careers team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Supporting the School:
