Welcome Event hosts Class of 2020

On Thursday 28 June the college invited prospective students to ‘Welcome to WQE’, an all-day event which helped students experience what it’s like to attend a sixth form college and have taster sessions in the subjects they wish to study with us.

With over 1500 students in attendance the day provided many opportunities including meeting their subject teachers and new friends. Many students praised the teaching style at the college, having a university-styled timetable and excited to have more independence.

Between their subject taster sessions students got involved with ‘WQE Life,’ which included a quiz taking our students around the college and across to different buildings to find the answers. During their free time students explored the college, visited the enrichment market place and many treated themselves to a Starbucks from the canteen.

When speaking to students throughout the day they all praised the sessions they’d received, the positive atmosphere of the campus and the warm welcome they received.

Students who were unable to attend the welcome event can find further information about the college and the courses we provide on our website.
