Have a Go – Free activity weekend

Group photo taken in the sports hall where a large group of parents and staff are standing in front of a goal smiling with their arms up in the air. The young people are sitting on a bench (and in front of it). They are holding up pieces of paper with letters on that spell out the words ‘Have a Go’.

Parents or guardians – don’t miss out

Free accommodation is available for an accompanying adult to stay over. Whilst the young people are involved in the activities over the weekend you will have a personalised tour of campus and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have to our registry and learning teams.


“I just wanted to thank you and everyone else involved for the ‘have a go’ weekend and the warm welcome we received at the college. We were impressed by the facilities and the obvious dedication of all of the staff, and it is clear that the students have a strong bond and really value their time there.” David (parent at a previous Have a Go.)
