Deputy Principal, Kate Martin commented on the events:
“Visiting the DCG Open Evening or the Broomfield Hall Open Day are both great ways for potential students to learn about and get a sense of what they might want to do with their lives. 

“They provide students with an understanding of the academic programmes, our culture, the college atmosphere, and the surrounding surroundings.  

“Students can make well-informed judgements about their future education and can help them identify the best fit for their objectives, passions, and aspirations.” 

Visitors need to pre-register for both the All-Sites Open Evening – held at the Roundhouse and the Broomfield Hall Open Day.
