Students from local high schools across North Staffordshire had a sneak preview of college life this week when they visited Stoke on Trent College.
Pupils from Discovery, Excel, Sandon, Birches Head, Co-op, St Peters, Madeley, Moorside and Wolstanton visited the colleges first ever Secondary College.
The year 10 youngsters had the chance to have a go at a number of fun activities, whilst gaining first hand experience of everything the college has to offer at both the Cauldon and Burslem campus.
From art and graphics, to media, bricklaying, engineering and performing arts – there was something for everyone and the youngsters also had the opportunity to see for themselves the state of the art facilities the college has to offer.
Many of the youngsters said they hoped to return to Stoke on Trent college in September 2017, once they have completed their GCSE’s.
Director of Marketing and Admissions, Mark Whittaker, said ” We’ve had a fantastic four days welcoming students from our local schools. This is our first ever secondary college and the youngsters all seemed to enjoy themselves. Events such as these give them the opportunity to see the outstanding facilities the college has to offer, as well as familiarising themselves with the campus and vast array of courses. Secondary college gives our prospective students the chance to meet the staff as well as see first hand what their chosen course entails before they come along to our open evenings.”
School pupils who complete their studies at high school this summer can still apply for courses at Stoke on Trent College starting in September. Our admissions and careers teams are always on hand to give advice to youngsters and adults who are unsure of the next step!
