Open Day

About the event

Join an Outstanding College!

Our next Open Day is on Thursday 24 November 2022, 4.00pm – 6.00pm and is open to anyone looking to study with us! **Please note, the event will be finishing at 6.00pm (rather than the earlier advertised time of 7.00pm) due to the Old Mill Lane campus being a host site for Barnsley Bright Nights**

We are the most successful general Further Education college in the region offering over a range of full and part-time vocational courses, A Levels, apprenticeships, T Levels (Technical qualifications) and university-level courses.

Visit our Open Day and we will show you what we have to offer you, regardless of whether you’re leaving school and want to take your next step, or if you’re an adult looking to gain a higher-level qualification, we’re sure we’ve got the course for you.

At the event, you will have the opportunity to find out about the wide range of career pathways we offer and see our fantastic facilities.

Will you be leaving school in 2023?

If you’re trying to decide what to do after leaving school, then look no further than Barnsley College or Barnsley Sixth Form College.

You and your parents/carers will have the opportunity to speak to tutors, attend presentations, find out about the range of support services available to you, and look around the campuses to see our great facilities.

Looking for A Levels?

Barnsley Sixth Form College will be open so come and find out about the range of A Level subjects that are available to study. It has an excellent reputation for success and achieved a 99% overall pass rate in 2022 with a 100% pass rate in 20 subjects. The Sixth Form campus is on St Mary’s Place, a short walk from the Old Mill Lane campus.

Interested in a university-level course?

If you’re looking to extend your qualifications with a university-level course, we offer a range of higher-level programmes including foundation and honours degrees, Higher and Degree Apprenticeships, HNCs, HNDs and professional business and leadership courses which are validated by leading universities.

Looking for an adult or part-time course?

The Open Day also offers an opportunity for you to find out about our adult and part-time courses. These range from career-focused qualifications to short programmes which can be studied as a hobby or for fun.

Aged 16-18 and not currently in education, employment or training?

There’s still time to apply for this academic year. Through a personalised timetable you can build your skills for the future – whether it’s a mix of art, engineering, digital and fashion; or construction, catering, games design, music, or anything in between.
