A chance to find out what’s on offer at your local sixth form college.

Saturday 8th November 2014, 10am to 4pm

Cadbury College, Downland Close, Kings Norton, Birmingham

Young people and their families are being invited to Cadbury Sixth Form College’s annual Open Day on Saturday 8th November 2014.

Cadbury College

 

The event is aimed at local students in Year 11 who will take their GCSEs in summer 2015. The government has risen the participation age, which means that young people completing their GCSEs next year are required to stay in education or training until their 18th birthday. However, this does not mean that pupils have to stay in school, one of the options is to continue their education at a sixth form college, such as Cadbury College.

The Open Day will provide young people and their parents with an opportunity to find out about the specialist A Level college, which offers over 45 different advanced level courses including A Level and BTEC qualifications at Level 3.

Situated in Kings Norton, Cadbury College caters exclusively for 16 to 18 years olds.

This year, the college continued its record of excellence with a ‘Good’ grading from Ofsted and another great set of A Level results that enabled around 80% of students to progress onto university.

The Open Day will run from 10am until 4pm at the college campus in Downland Close, Kings Norton in Birmingham. Visitors will be able to speak to subject teachers first-hand who will answer any questions regarding individual courses and there will be introductory talks by Principal Jeremy Rogers scheduled throughout the day.  Students will also be available to talk about their subjects and their own experience of college life.

Andy Cookson, Assistant Principal Learner Experience, said

“For anyone who is interested in studying at a sixth form college, I would advise them to visit our Open Day, it is a great opportunity for year 11 students and their parents to find out what the college offers and get a chance discuss their options with our subject specialist teaching staff.”
