Open Days and Admission Visits

Visiting the College

The College is normally open to members of the public every day from 2pm to 5pm (except on some public holidays and during the College's Christmas closure period). There is no entry fee and no booking is required for individuals or groups of fewer than 6 people. On arrival, all visitors are asked to report to the Porters' Lodge, on the right just inside the main entrance.

Prospective applicants are welcome to look around the College grounds, free of charge, during the afternoon, and can also collect prospectuses from the College Lodge. You may visit at other times by prior arrangement, and staff in the Admissions Office are available and happy to help with any queries during office hours.  

Schools and colleges wishing to arrange group visits are welcome to do so by contacting the Admissions and Access Officer, Alison Attwell, on or 01865 278391. Please see our Teachers and Schools page.

Occasionally the College may be closed for functions.
