What to expect

Our A Level open evenings are designed specifically for those interested in studying at the college's sixth form. You'll have the opportunity to find out more about the courses available, and what's on offer to you as an A Level student. 

  • Meet our tutors – They’re passionate about the subjects they teach and are happy to answer your questions.
  • Get a glimpse at college life – Studying A Levels at college gives you access to much more than a sixth form.
  • Apply on the night –  Don't wait for A Level results - our friendly staff are on-hand to help you fill out any tricky forms and answer questions.
  • Helps you to make a decision – Undecided about what you’d like to do next? Our careers team are available to speak to as well as tutors and/or current students.
  • Share the experience – Bring along family and friends so they too can get an idea of what life is like at West Notts and help you make those all-important decisions. 


If A Levels are your preferred route after finishing your GCSEs, consider West Notts' sixth form as your first choice for study.
