Book for Open Day 2021

Solihull Sixth Form College campusSolihull Sixth Form College is holding an Open Day for prospective students and parents on Saturday 16 October and booking is essential.

The doors to the Widney Manor Road campus will be open from 9.30am – 3.30pm (last entry at 2.30pm) and any prospective student or parent who wishes to attend must book a timed-entry slot HERE.

Teachers from all Curriculum areas will be present to answer questions and current students will be on hand to describe what their A level, BTEC or CACHE studies entail. Members of the senior leadership team will be delivering talks every hour to give students and parents an insight into what makes Solihull Sixth Form College such a popular choice for post-16 study. In addition, information about the support services we offer – including careers guidance, academic coaching, additional learning support, admissions, student welfare and financial support – will be available.

College Principal Dr Martin Sullivan commented:

“It’s great to be able to welcome prospective students and parents back onto campus after a year of online open days. There is no substitute for visiting in person to talk to teachers and current students and see the facilities and resources for yourself, so we urge students to make a booking as soon as possible. Solihull Sixth Form College is a very popular destination for aspiring level 3 students, as we saw during this year’s enrolment. Students who view this college as their first choice give themselves the best possible chance of securing their place if they come along to find out more about us, so they are then able to make informed decisions about applying.”

The College will be utilising Eventbrite to ticket this Open Day and adopt a timed entry system for this event. This is just one of the Covid-safety measures being put in place to ensure the event can take place as normally as possible, while keeping staff, students and visitors safe. We are also limiting tickets to three tickets per visiting student and insisting they come with parents/guardian and not siblings or friends. Not only do we want to have parental involvement in post-16 decisions, but this will allow us to keep the numbers of people on campus to a manageable level.

The College is encouraging visitors to wear face coverings and take lateral flow Covid-19 tests before they attend. No one exhibiting any symptoms should attend. Other open events in November and January will give people with the chance to attend at a later date.
