Every student with an offer to study at the College for September 2020 was invited to attend Welcome to College Week during the week of 22 – 26 June 2020. 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.
Applicants were also emailed with a copy of the Welcome to College Week Guide. This guide explains what students will need to do to enrol in August. A further mailing will go out in July about Enrolment.
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.
Teachers will be giving prospective students a small piece of Summer Homework to do before September. We ask that you do your best with the task you have been set and bring it with you to your first lesson in September. This will help teachers see what level you are currently working at and get your off to the best possible start in your A level, BTEC or CACHE studies.
