***Open Evening Travel Update - please note that there are road closures around Thames Ditton village, which may result in heavier traffic than usual.***
Our next Open Evening, for entry in September 2019, will take place on Monday 2nd July 2018 between 4.30 - 8.00pm.
All departments will be ‘open’ during this evening for parents, guardians and students to have a look around and ask questions about the various courses that we offer. Our 2019 prospectus will also be available together with course information sheets for all of our A Level and BTEC courses.
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. Pick up our course information sheets
We provide a course information sheet for every subject, which provides information on what you will be taught, how a subject is examined, where the subject could take you in the future and much more. These be invaluable when you get home and start thinking more about which subjects you really want to study at Esher College.
3. Take the time to hear our Principal’s talk
There will be a 10-minute presentation by the Principal, Dan Dean, in the College Theatre
(Green Zone CT1) at 5.15pm, 5.45pm, 6.15pm, 6.45pm and 7.15pm. There will be further
opportunities later in the 2019 application process to hear the Principal speak.
4. Take the time to hear our Admissions talk
There will be a 10-minute talk on the 2019 applications process in Learning Resource
Centre 2 (Green Zone) at 5.00pm, 5.30pm, 6.00pm, 6.30pm and 7.00pm. The Admissions
team will also be available in Learning Resource Centre 1 (Red Zone), to answer any questions you may have.
5. Talk to our students and staff
We have Student Ambassadors around the College and many departments have student
helpers for the evening. Ask them why they picked Esher College, what they like most/least about Esher and 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 Esher College and studying their specialist subjects.
6. Visit the Learning Resource Centre 1 (Red Zone) to get information about our Student Services
There is so much more to Esher College than just the subjects we offer, so come to the Learning Resource Centre 1 (Red Zone) to find out more about what we offer for our extensive Extension Studies options, the role of our proactive Student Union, our Personal Development Programme (run during tutor time), how we support the Health and Wellbeing of our students and Student Finance. Here you will also find our Progression Guidance Team, who can offer help on which course to choose.
