Twilight College Experience for Year 10s and 11s
Twilight College Experience 2019, Tuesday 2nd July, 4.30pm to 7pm
What is this event?
Twilight College Experience gives you the chance to visit us and participate in taster sessions to see what life here could be like. Sessions take place after school, giving you plenty of time to get here. There is also a special parents talk and staff on hand to provide information, advice and guidance.
Who is it for?
- Year 10 pupils from schools with sixth forms
- Year 11 pupils who may not yet be completely sure where they want to study after GCSEs
- Some Year 9s who are being home-schooled may also choose to attend
- See what teaching and learning at New College might be like
- Opportunity to experience subjects not on offer at other school 6th forms
- Meet some of our students and ask about College life
- Helps with the decision-making process – the familiar environment of staying in your sixth form may suit some students but others prefer a wider choice of courses, opportunities and independence that College can offer.
There will be chances to visit New College at other open events during Year 11, but only Twilight will give you an idea of what teaching and learning will be like here.

Making your choices
Look through the list below (on the booking form) and make FIVE choices which you would like to sample.
Ask your parent/carer to complete the booking form below on your behalf. You need to complete ALL fields, paying special attention to those sections asking for contact details, parental consent and any other needs we should be aware of in advance. The closing date to apply is Wednesday 26th June.
You will receive an email acknowledging receipt of your application and a further email close to 2nd July reminding you to attend. We regret that we will not be able to let you know which of your choices you have been allocated until the evening itself. This is because we receive quite a few applications close to the date and we don't schedule the sessions until the day before.
Parents! Please can you also indicate whether you intend to stay for refreshment and/or attend the Parents’ Talk as this will help us plan for numbers?
Attendance – please make every effort to attend the event if you sign up. This helps us with planning and allocating numbers for each session and non-attendance can cause us problems.
