three female students walking from college with books Open Evenings

These happen in the Autumn and Spring terms and are primarily aimed at Year 11s / school leavers and provide an opportunity to visit our three campuses, see our facilities and chat with 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. We also offer a virtual Open Event that's available to explore 24/7.

Places on Open Evenings need to be pre-booked so we can manage numbers, provide a quick check-in and give you the best experience possible.

The whole process was warm and welcoming. Easy to navigate.

A very warm welcome which put my shy nervous daughter at ease immediately. Thank you.

Friendly greeting and helpful staff and students on hand.

I thought all the student helpers were engaging and very friendly.

The staff were enthusiastic and informative.

The students were really helpful and easily approachable to talk to and gave a fully honest view of the subject.

I found the evening very encouraging and have booked onto the taster day and have a better idea of the A levels I would like to take. I'm looking forward to the taster day.

The principal’s talk was inspirational and the college clearly values ALL children. Whilst it is great to celebrate the high achievers it was so good to hear about children exceeding expectations.
