The 30 March deadline to apply to The Sixth Form College, Solihull for September 2018 is fast approaching, but there is one last opportunity to visit the College and talk to teachers before that deadline passes.
Information Evening takes place on Thursday 1 March 2018. The College is open from 4.30pm – 7.00pm (last entry at 6.30pm) in the College’s Sports Hall and Dance Studio. The event is similar to an open evening, in that it is open to all prospective students and parents. However, not all areas of the campus will be open for this event; instead all courses will have stands set up in our Sports Hall for visitors to visit. Teachers and students will be on hand to answer questions that would-be applicants may have ahead of making their College application. Pre-registration is open now.
The College has already received lots of applications for this September, but there is still time for those who have yet to apply to do so. Those that apply online before this deadline are guaranteed to be interviewed, provided they look set to meet our entry requirements and are in receipt of a good reference from their school. Students that apply after the deadline risk having their application put onto a waiting list, pending availability on their courses of choice.
Staff from our Admissions Office will be available at Information Evening to answer questions about the application process. There will also be staff on hand to offer specialist advice about careers support, academic coaching support and additional learning support. Additionally, there will be information about enrichment, specialist academies and our Career Passport scheme available for visitors. Principal Martin Sullivan will be giving talks at 4.45pm, 5.30pm and 6.15pm in our Dance Studio.
College Principal Martin Sullivan commented:
“Our October Open Day and November Open Evening were very well received by both prospective students and parents and we are working our way through the applications we have received so far. Lots of interviews have taken place already and offers have been made. For those waiting for interview, we have interview evenings scheduled in February, March and May, but there is still time for students to apply if they have not done so yet. Talking to teachers before they apply can be very beneficial.”
