Parents invited to information evening

Parents and carers of Year 11 school children will have the opportunity to find out more about the courses available at Barnsley College and Barnsley Sixth Form College at a Parent Information Evening on Thursday 28 September, 6.00pm to 8.00pm.

Making decisions on what to do after school can be a daunting task for a Year 11 pupil and the aim of the event is to provide parents with information on what is available at college so that they can support their child in making this important decision.

Barnsley College and Barnsley Sixth Form College offer courses in a range of subjects and parents will have the opportunity to chat to tutors and attend presentations on vocational courses, A Levels and apprenticeships.

Chris Webb, Principal at Barnsley College, said: “We understand the important role that parents and carers play in the decision-making process when their child is thinking about what to do after they leave school. This event is a great opportunity for parents to come along and find out more about what is available at Barnsley College and Barnsley Sixth Form College so that they can help their child make an informed decision on what to do next.”

The event is aimed specifically at parents or carers of Year 11 school children. There will be a further opportunity for potential students to visit the college with their parents at our forthcoming Open Events on Wednesday 18 October and Saturday 25 November.

This Parent Information Evening event takes place at the college’s Old Mill Lane campus on Church Street.

If you are a parent/carer of a current A Level student, please make your way to Barnsley Sixth Form College for the A Level Parents Evening.
