If you are a student with an offer to study at the College in September 2017, you will be invited to attend Welcome to College Day on Friday 30 June or Monday 3 July 2017. This event will essentially be a taster session for all prospective students, to give you a chance to try your subjects and make sure you are making the right choices for you!
When is it?
Friday 30 June 2017 or Monday 3 July 2017
The event will run from 9.30am until 2.15 or 3.30pm (depending on your course choices). Staying until 3.30pm gives you the chance to find out about another course if you are considering requesting a change of subject. Forms to request a change of subject can only be completed during this optional last session of the day.
Remember your Golden Ticket on the day (which we will post to you) to be entered into a prize draw on arrival. The prize is a Linx 820 8” tablet device, with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
As well as getting a taster for your academic courses at this event, Welcome to College Day is also a great opportunity to learn more about the enrichment options you could take part in during your time at College. Enrichment is a great way to make new friends, but it is also a brilliant thing to put on your applications for university, training courses or employment, so we strongly advise all students pick an enrichment activity to participate in. The options open to students include academic options linked closely to certain courses or career options (which are detailed in the Specialist Academies Guide below), as well as non-academic options like music, drama, dance, sport and much more (see the Enrichment Guide below for more information).
Nearer the date of this event, we will post a copy of the Welcome to College Day Guide on here in case student misplace theirs on the day. We will also include downloads for the Summer Homework for each course. This will be handed out at Welcome to College Day, but will also be available to download if this is lost. The homework is not too challenging and should not take you long, but is designed to get you off to a good start with your studies in September and show your teachers what you already know!
