Date Posted: 16/10/2018 | Posted In: College News, Student News

We had a fantastic turnout for our first Open Event on Saturday 13 October. Pupils and parents from in and around the borough met staff and current students to find out all about College life. Our visitors were invited to get crafty and make tote bags using stencil and stamp techniques with students from the Art department. Those interested in Biology, watched a heart dissection carried out by our very own students and our performing arts students entertained parents and pupils with pop up performances. Our visitors also enjoyed free refreshments in the rooftop restaurant. A big thank you to all our visitors for making this event our best ever! If you missed it, our next Open Event is on Wednesday 7 November 5.30pm – 8.00pm

Here is some lovely feedback from our visitors…

“Came today for open day and wow how impressed my son and I were. From the moment entering the building to leaving, I couldn’t have asked for any more help or information. The staff and students were most help not only telling us about the courses but to helping my with getting to all the floors via the lift due my disability. My hope is that my son chooses this sixth form college to do his A levels in September 2019 . I can’t emphasize enough how impressed I was with the whole experience today. Thank you all for making it such a lovely first experience at looking at college as we both were a bit nervous about this next step in my son’s education. Highly recommend a visit to see for yourself”
