In College

Open Events

Over the course of the academic year, there are many opportunities for prospective students and their parents/guardians to visit the college. 

Open Days and Evenings are an important and valuable opportunity to meet teachers, other staff and current students, and to find out more about the courses, support and facilities available. They are also a good way to generally get a feel for the college.
