As you reach a crossroads in your education, we understand that you will be starting to consider your options for the future. We are pleased to be able to offer an opportunity for current year 10 students and their parents/guardians to visit the College and truly experience what it is like to be a student at Farnborough.


You will attend taster sessions in 3 subjects of your choice in order to assist with your future programme of study and to experience a typical lesson at the College. Each session will last 45 minutes.

Using the 'Get Tickets' link above, please choose four courses and we will endeavour to give you your top three choices for the subject taster sessions. The courses available for these sessions have been selected so that you have an opportunity to experience a wide range of subjects including those that you may be less familiar with. They represent just some of the courses that will be available to you should you decide to apply to the College. Your timetable for the day will be confirmed ahead of your visit.

You will also be taken on a guided tour of the College campus by current students who will be able to give you even more of an insight into life at Farnborough. Timings for the afternoon are as follows:

Your visit will include a talk from Simon Jarvis, Principal, a guided tour of the College campus (refreshments will be served as part of the tour) and a presentation regarding the pastoral support system from our Deputy Principal of Student Services, Catherine Cole.
