Open Evenings

The College holds Open Events each year. For 2019 entry, these will take place on:

  • Wednesday 17 October 2018 (5.30-8.30pm)
  • Tuesday 23 October 2018 (5.30-8.30pm)
  • Saturday 24 November 2018 (10.30am – 1.30pm).

These are opportunities for prospective students and their parents to visit the College and find out more about the courses available.

An additional Open Evening for Year 11, Year 10 and Year 9 pupils is scheduled for Wednesday 6 March 2019 (5.30 -8pm).


The Bridging Course

If you apply to the College and are offered a place, you will be invited to our Bridging Course in early July as soon as GCSE exams are completed. This is to give you the opportunity to sample a range of subjects and to learn more about life in College.

At the end of the week you have a personal interview to discuss your plans for September.

We strongly advise applicants to take advantage of Open Events and our Bridging Course.

For each of our partner schools there is a team of liaison staff who visit the school to give advice about Study Programmes and information about life in College. Staff will explain our entry procedure and help with applications.

If you do not attend one of QE’s partner schools, please contact Meirion Baker (Assistant Principal) who will send you relevant information.
