Open Events

Attending an Open Event is the best way to find out more about the college and the courses on offer. It can help you make an informed decision about the right course for you, particularly if you are unsure of which direction to take after school. With staff from across the college all available to answer your questions in one place, it’s an ideal time to find out everything you need to know. From course selection to transport options, we’re here to support you through the application and enrolment process.

If you are a Year 10 or 11 student, it’s a great opportunity to take a good look around the campus. You can talk to staff and students about the subjects that interest you, and find out about all the opportunities available to you at King Edward VI College.
