These are primarily aimed at Year 11s / school leavers and happen in October/November each year. They provide an opportunity to visit our three campuses, see our facilities and chat to teachers and current students about what our courses involve and what student life is like. College support staff are on hand for advice on careers, transport and finance and there are presentations from the principal. Classrooms and workshops have demonstrations and you’ll be able to visit other areas including our learning resource centres, social spaces and cafes.
During our Open Evenings on 16 & 24 October at English Bridge Campus and 8 November at London Road Campus James Staniforth, Principal and CEO of Shrewsbury Colleges Group, will be giving talks at various times on what you can expect from our College and what we will expect from our students.

Progression Events are information events for pupils leaving Year 11 for Sixth Form or Further Education. These free to attend mini expos take place in September/October each year and bring together the main providers of post 16 education in the area. Each institution has a stand with course information and staff available to speak to regarding your particular interests. In addition, there will be talks from the Principal of Shrewsbury Colleges Group explaining how the different qualifications work and allow you to progress to university and employment.
