Open Events

We will be hosting Open Events for prospective Y11 students considering an application for September 2024 on the following dates:

Saturday 7th October, 10.00 am - 1.00 pm and 

Monday 16th October, 5.00 - 8.00 pm.

The events are ticketed, each ticket enables entry for up to 3 individuals.  To book a ticket please follow the link here.  You can also find further details about Admissions and the application process here.  Tickets will allow entry for the student and up to two other family members (i.e. a maximum of 3 people per ticket). We ask that visitors respect this limit please and keep to the session times to ensure all guests are able to access the facilities during their visit.  Students are asked to attend with a parent or carer, or a responsible adult, not as a group of friends.

We very much hope you find the events informative.

Please note we are unable to offer parking on site to visitors.  However, if access is required for disabled drivers/students, please contact the College and appropriate arrangements will be made.  There is a public car park off Manchester Road near the Town Hall, about 5 minutes walk away.  It is very important to stress that parking restrictions operate in a number of streets immediately surrounding the College and these are actively enforced.  We hope this does not cause you too much inconvenience. We would respectfully ask all drivers to please be considerate to local residents if you are parking in the area.

On arrival, please go to the Main Reception off Manchester Road where you can pick up more information from one of our student guides or a member of staff. 

We operate an online application system and the window for applications for entry in September 2024 opens on Monday 2nd October and closes on Thursday 30th November 2023.  The deadline is applied strictly.  For further information, please contact
