Year 11 Open Evenings 2018

Year 11 Open Evenings 2018

Holy Cross Sixth Form College – Year 11 Open Evenings 2018

Monday 8th October and Thursday 18th October, 5.30pm – 8.00pm

We would like to invite you and your parents/carers to attend one of our Open Evenings. The aim of these events is to provide you with the opportunity to view the College facilities, talk to staff and students and gather the information you require about Holy Cross.

We cater for students who wish to continue their full-time education in a caring, supportive environment once they leave High School at the age of 16.

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 do hope you will be able to join us to see what we have to offer.

Please note that due to very limited car parking space on the College site, there will not be any parking available to visitors. However, if access is required for disabled drivers/students, please contact the College and appropriate arrangements will be made. There are public car parks  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 during the evenings. Please note, 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.

Jaiden Corfield

Jaiden has been a participant in youth work programmes and keen advocate for Salford young people for several years.

He was invited to speak onstage at a hugely prestigious event near Oxford on Thursday 13th September. Google hosted a global event for heads of industry (Disney, Facebook, Cisco, KPMG, Sky and IKEA) to consider adopting different practices in spotting talent, increasing diversity and allowing a greater flexibility in young people gaining paid internships etc.

Jaiden spoke for ten minutes onstage in front of over 100 global leaders and was interviewed by journalists including Huw Edwards from BBC News. As a result of this Jaiden has been offered an internship from Google.

Well done Jaiden!

Mary Olanrewaju Aspiring to improve inclusion in African Communities

Mary from Manchester studied BA Education and Special Educational Needs at Holy Cross University Centre, in the Network of Hope. Her journey started with a desire to raise disability awareness in African communities both in the UK and Africa.

Mary founded ‘Equal Education Chances (EEC) Africa. The aim is to enhance the development of individual capacities, competences and skills. This will be achieved by having a direct impact on children and young people with disabilities. EEC aims to promote human rights, equality and diversity by educating the public about human rights laws, disabilities and equality and promoting positive social attitudes towards disability’’.

EEC is currently in partnership with a special school in Lagos which accommodates 25 children with various kinds of impairments and due to stigmatisation they have been abandoned in the home. We offer foods, education materials, feeding equipment, comfort aids and provided general advice or inclusive teaching.
