The After School Taster Sessions planned for 30th March – 1st April 2021 are unfortunately unable to go ahead due to current Covid-19 restrictions.

Our next (socially distanced) open event is planned for Wednesday 19th May and would be an ideal opportunity speak with members of staff about the range of courses on offer. Our admissions and careers teams will also be on hand to discuss your options with you.

In the meantime you can still apply online. If you submit an application the admissions team will contact you to support you through the application process.

If you are unsure how to apply, would like to chat with our admissions team or book a careers appointment, please email and we’ll be in touch. Alternatively, you can call us on 02392 383131 or chat with us online during office hours.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

After School Taster Sessions are a great way to explore your options at Highbury College.

After School Taster Sessions provide a brilliant introduction to your chosen course or can simply be a great way to discover which course is right for you.
