Next Open Event: SATURDAY 21 SEPTEMBER, 11am-3pm

One of the best ways to find out what life as a Runshaw student is like is to come to an Open Event. We hold these events throughout the year. They are a great opportunity to meet the staff who will teach you, talk with current students and to explore our beautiful campuses.

Runshaw Sixth Form College Open Events

Runshaw Sixth Form College hosts three Open Events a year, with great activities and experiences at each one! We also host a special daytime, Saturday Open Day in September too. These events are held at our Leyland Campus. Our next Open Event will be on Saturday 21 September 2019 from 11am-3pm. Our Open Events are a great opportunity to meet staff and current students, explore our campus and get advice about A Levels, Vocational courses and Apprenticeships. Everybody is welcome to these events, and don’t forget to pick up a famous Runshaw Cookie before you leave!
