Following the success of Open Day in mid-October, Solihull Sixth Form College is again opening its doors to prospective students and parents Wednesday 27 November for an Open Evening. Online pre-registration is now open.
The College will be open from 5.00 – 8.00pm, with a last entry time of 7.30pm and all prospective students are asked to come accompanied by a parent or other adult. The event provides young people from Solihull and Birmingham the opportunity to see the range of more than 40 courses on offer and the support offered.
Teachers and current students in all our A level and BTEC courses will be available to talk to prospective students and parents at this event and give them more information about what these courses involve and what exciting careers and university courses they can lead to.
College support services will also be on hand to talk to visitors, with staff available to discuss Careers, Employability, Additional Learning Support, Academic Coaching and Enrichment. In addition, representatives from Aston, Birmingham, BCU, Coventry, Southampton and Warwick Universities will be at the Widney Manor Road campus for the event, helping students to decide what are their most appropriate subject choices with particular careers or university courses in mind.
College Principal Martin Sullivan commented:
“We had an excellent turnout for our October Open Day and we are hoping for more of the same when this Open Evening takes place at the end of November. It provides young people in Birmingham and Solihull with the opportunity to find out more about the post-16 choices available to them so they can make informed choices.”
As well as all the A level and BTEC courses we offer, the College will also be showcasing its impressive range of enrichments. A number of Higher Education institutions support the College’s Specialist Academies, which are enrichments run to support students with particular career ambitions. These academies include a Pre-Medical School, Shakespeare Academy, Psychology Research School, Humanities Academy and Social Sciences Academy. Enrichment activities in sport, drama and student-led activities are also available.
Pre-registration for Open Evening will remain open until 12.00pm on Wednesday 27 November.
