College Tours

Our college tours period has now finished, we are unable to offer any tours after the Christmas break. 

If you are applying to study with us in September 2023 and didn't get the chance to visit us, please do not worry. Students who make an application and accept an offer of study with us, will be invited to attend an Applicant Welcome Day on either the 6th or 7th July 2023. You will spend the day as a Long Road student; taking part in taster lessons, meeting current staff and students, and getting a first-hand experience of what college life is like.

We are also holding summer Open Evenings on the 4th and 5th July 2023 which are an excellent opportunity for you to explore the campus with your family before making a final decision on where to study when you receive your GCSE Results.
