Taster Days

Taster Week  

Please Note: Our next taster sessions will be taking place in June/July 2018 for students looking to join us in September 2018.

Picking the right course can be stressful and confusing. At SHC we run taster days for each of our subjects so you can get some hands on experience of what our courses offer. 

If you want to take part in any of our taster sessions, submit an application today!

At our A-Level taster day, you can sample any of our A-Level subjects. You will be able to choose 5 different subjects on the day.

Taster Day: Thursday 5th July 2018

GCSE Study Programme

Our GCSE study programme is designed for students who missed out on achieving the grades they wanted at GCSE level. This course is also helpful for new arrivals to the UK with GCSE equivalents.

This course will prepare you for A-Levels or a vocational course.

Taster Day: Thursday 5th July 2018

Hospitality & Catering

The Hospitality & Catering taster session runs differently to our other taster days; this is because it takes place over a two week period to analyse your key skills and ensure that the level and course is right for you.

Catering Taster Course: Monday 18th June to Wednesday 4th July

If you have any questions about the Hospitality & Catering courses or the taster session, please do not hesitate to contact the curriculum leader:

Inclusive Learning

The Inclusive Learning department have their taster day on a separate day to every other department and subject, so that you can relax in a calm environment and enjoy the day, away from everybody else. 

Taster Day: Thursday 28th June 2018
