Making The Most Of Your Visit 

Here are our top tips on how to make the most of your visit: 

1. Visit the subjects you are most interested in first 

Every subject has opened up their teaching area for you to get a feel of the subject and the facilities available. With over 40 potential subjects to study we offer a lot of choice! 

 2. Read the course information on our website  

Our new website provides detailed course information on each of the subjects we offer including information on what you will be taught, how a subject is examined, where the subject could take you in the future and much more. Make sure you scan the QR codes on the posters in each of the departments to find out more. You can also visit the courses section of our website by clicking here.

There will be a 10-minute presentation by the Principal, Dan Hards, in the Sports Hall (Green Zone) at 5:00pm (for those on 4:30-6:00pm session), 5:45pm (for those on 5:00-6.30pm session), 6:15pm for those on 5:30-7:00pm session), 6:45pm (for those on 6:00-7:30 session) and 7:15pm (for those on 6:30-8:00pm session).

We have Student Ambassadors around the College and many departments have student helpers for the evening. Ask them why they picked Esher Sixth Form College? What they like most/least about Esher? What a typical day is like at the College? They will also be able to give you more insight to the subjects they study and how they made their decisions. Our staff will also be able to answer your questions about the College and studying their specialist subjects.

There is so much more to Esher Sixth Form College than just the subjects we offer, so come to the Learning Resource Centre 1 (Green Zone) to find out more about what we offer for our extensive Extension Studies options, our Excellence@Esher programme, our Personal Development Programme (run during tutor time), how we support the Health and Wellbeing of our students and Student Finance.

Travel and Parking 

We will have parking on-site but as Open Evening is a busy night for us, it can sometimes get congested. Please note, the main College car park is accessed from the Weston Green Road entrance not via the back entrance on Weston Green. If you are using Sat Nav – please be aware that the College postcode (KT7 0JB) takes you to the back of the College (on Weston Green) and you will not be able to enter the car park via this route. 

Visitors are encouraged to travel by public transport where possible. We are less than a five-minute walk from Thames Ditton railway station and a 15-minute walk from Esher railway station.
