Applicant Welcome Days July 2022

Posted on

We know that joining a new college can be a little daunting, that’s why we are super excited to invite you to one of our Welcome Days!

This year, our Welcome Days will be held on Thursday, 7th and Friday, 8th July 2022.

Our Welcome Days are created with you in mind, the aim is to make you feel as comfortable, prepared and excited as possible to join us as a new student in September! You will spend the day trying out your chosen subjects, getting to know subject teachers, meeting other new students who share your academic interests and finding out what life is like as a Long Road student. We make every effort to try and ensure you are timetabled for the lessons you have been offered but this may not always be possible. If you are a Level 2 student, then you might be invited to general Level 2 sessions, which will be held throughout the day, rather than your chosen subjects.

On arrival, please head to the main carpark, where you will be directed to your lessons.

If you are feeling a little nervous, don’t worry! There will be plenty of people to help you on the day. You are also welcome to pop in and speak to our Academic Support team if you need assistance or just a chat.

What do I need to bring on the day?

To ensure you can get the most out of your day, we would like you to bring some pen and paper with you. You will also need to bring a packed lunch – limited snacks will be available to purchase on site.

How do I get to Long Road?

The college shuttle bus will be available for pick up and drop off at the Cambridge Railway Station at the following times:

  • 9:45am Cambridge Station > Long Road
  • 10:15am Cambridge Station > Long Road
  • 3:50pm Long Road > Cambridge Station
  • 4:20pm Long Road > Cambridge Station

Summer Work

One of the most important activities to help prepare you for your studies as a Long Road student is completing the Summer Work tasks for each of your subjects. We will explain this activity to you during our Welcome Days as well as share downloadable Summer Work documents, soon to be on our website, to refresh your memory over the summer holidays.

These activities aren’t here to trip you up or catch you out, they’re designed to give you an extra taste of what you will be learning during your time at Long Road and we hope you have fun completing them! The Summer Work will need to be completed, ready for your first day with us.

Our friendly Admissions Team are always on hand to help you with any questions you have for us, so please feel free to contact us via email: or phone: 01223 631125.

Best wishes,

Long Road Admissions Team
