Thanks for joining us online for our Mini Online Open Event!
We would love to be able to show you around our Amersham campus and meet you face to face, however, due to the current circumstances we felt the responsible thing to do was to help keep people safe, and try to give you a taste of what college is like from the comfort of your own home instead!
Hopefully we’ll be able to meet you in person soon, but until then you’ll be able to ‘meet’ our Principal Karen Mitchell in the video below, where you’ll find out what College courses are all about.
Got a question?
The event may be over but we can still answer your questions on Facebook and Instagram and the team will be in touch as soon as possible! You can message us on Facebook or head to Instagram stories to ask us something anonymously.
