Marple Welcome Day


What’s Happening?

The Welcome Evening is for students who have been offered a place at Marple Sixth Form College in September 2017. Applicants have been sent invites via email.

The evening will give you a chance to explore our facilities, learn more about what you will be studying on your chosen courses and about our student guidance programme, and discover the many sporting, cultural and social activities which we have to offer.

When Is It Happening?

  • Tuesday 25 April 4.00pm – 7.00pm

Come and meet teachers, tutors, college managers and current students, and get a real feel for the academic subjects, which you will be studying, at Cheadle. There will also be a Parent/Guardian session from 6.00pm – 7.00pm, on the same evening.

So, What Next?

If you can just let us know in advance whether you will be attending, we can tailor the evening to maximise its usefulness to you.
