Holy Cross College Open Events
We will hosting Open events for current Y11 students in October 2022. The dates and times of these are here:
- Saturday 8th October, 10.00 am - 1.00 pm
- Monday 17th October, 5.00 - 8.00 pm
We very much hope Y11 students will be able to attend one of the sessions as they will provide the opportunity to have a look around the college, talk to staff and students and to find out more about the subjects they are considering for study next year.
There will be two sessions per event (4 sessions overall). Visitors are asked to choose tickets for one of these sessions and will be onsite for approximately 90 minutes. Please check the times of your chosen session carefully. Tickets for the sessions can be booked 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 and keep to the session times to ensure all guests are able to access the facilities during their visit.
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. We would be grateful if parents did not use the car park belonging to Bury Catholic Preparatory School as this is often used by the school. 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.
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 are really looking forward to welcoming you to Holy Cross and very much hope that you will find the evening informative.
