Every student with an offer to study at the College for September 2021 will be invited into College for taster sessions in all the subjects they hold an offer in. this will take place on either Thursday 8 or Friday 9 July 2021.
Last year, students were invited to attend Welcome to College Week during the week of 22 – 26 June 2020. Because of the pandemic, we ran a series of online live streaming events, aimed at introducing students to the College and making sure they had picked the right courses. Teachers delivered information about their courses and answered hundreds of student questions. It was a great success and we thank everyone who attended. If you missed any of the sessions, we have recordings of most of them available now.
Welcome to College Week also provided students with the opportunity to learn more about the enrichment options they could take part in during their 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 (known as Specialist Academies), as well as non-academic options like music, drama, dance, sport and much more – see the Enrichment Guide for more information.
