Events For Schools

Year 10 Experience Days

Monday 27 June - Friday 1 July and Friday 8 July

Our Year 10 Experience Days are a fantastic opportunity for current Year 10 students from various schools in the area to spend a day at either our Bispham or Blackpool School of Arts Campus. These visits are organised between our School Liaison Team and individual local schools. For those institutions taking part, their students will experience a carousel of subject tasters so that they can experience what we have to offer.

Year 11 Transition Day

Wednesday 6 July

All current FE applicants for the 22/23 start will be invited to attend our Year 11 Transition Day. Invitations will be sent out w/c 6 June, so keep an eye out for your invitation on your post/texts/emails (and remember to check your junk mail too). This day will allow applicants to meet their subject tutors, future classmates, and see all of the support available at College. Transition Days are specifically designed to help you prepare for College, so whether you're excited, nervous or probably a bit of both, attending this event will help you settle in much more quickly come September.
