Book an Open Day

We hold a number of Open Days throughout the year and these are open to any student currently in Year 10 or 11. (for those in Year 9 please see the relevant paragraph below).

You will be given a presentation by the Principal and a tour of the College. You will have the opportunity to speak to our students and staff as well single service recruiters who will be in attendance. 

Booking is essential and you will only be given a place at an Open Day if you meet the academic entry and eligibility requirements for entry to the College. 


The deadline for applying to the Army for September 2019 has now passed.

The deadline for applying to DE&S is on 07 January 2019 which is before the next available open morning so please make sure you have started an application. Details on how to do this can be found on our website under 'apply'.

Year 11 students are welcome to attend any of our Open Days, however please familiarise yourself with the deadline of the service you are interested in joining, as some are later than others, and you may wish to visit first before starting an application. 

Please do not apply for an open day, unless you meet the academic requirements for the college, details on this can be found here

We would expect that you would be able to provide predicted/achieved GCSE grades or equivalent, failure to provide these when applying for a visit could delay your request being processed.


Are welcome to attend any of our Open Days.

We understand that you may not yet have your predicted GCSE grades, so we are happy for you to attend an open day, as long as you are fully aware of the GCSE grades you must be  predicted once you are in Year 11. If necessary you can use the 'grades not known' option on the drop down menu on the form below.


Students in Year 9, are welcome to attend any of our Open Days from January 2019.

We understand that you will not have predicted GCSE grades and recommend you use the 'grades not known' option on the drop down menu on the form below.
