We’re inviting groups of Year 11 students and their teachers to experience Bradford College for a day.

Join us for a day of immersive experiences including guest speakers, workshops and enrichment activities across many subjects. Whether its art, hairdressing, motor vehicle maintenance, catering, science or IT – all our teaching teams will be on hand to make the day a huge success.

At Bradford College we want to give prospective students the opportunity to come and have a real insight to life at Bradford College.  Refreshments will be included.

Students will get a chance to visit two subject specific areas across the course of the day. This is going to allow for a more in-depth visit and a chance to thoroughly experience the subject area they are interested in – and experience College life, as there will be a mix of students from other schools.

How to book

In order make the most out of the day, we need the names and choices of experiences for all students attending. This allows us to provide a tailored package and make the experience enjoyable.  Our Eventbrite booking page will guide you (see below).

Larger group? We want to make your booking process as easy as we can.  If you’d like to bring 15 students or more, we can help.  Please get in touch at [email protected] so we can help with the Eventbrite booking process.

What to expect on the day

You’ll start your day with a welcome talk and refreshments in one of our three campus buildings, depending on the subject chosen.  Session 1 will allow students to experience a range of exciting experiences, then lunch, and then you’ll be able to choose an entirely different experience for session 2.
