Information for Prospective Year 7 Students in September 2021

Welcome to the main information page for prospective Year 7 students and thank you for your interest in Collingwood College.

Welcome to our Virtual Open Evening

Virtual Tour



The Collingwood Experience from Our Students' Perspective 





We know that the best way to decide if a school is the right place for your child is to visit the site and meet current students and staff.  Unfortunately, due to the present Coronavirus restrictions on large gatherings and social distancing we are unable to offer our usual Parental Tours and Open Evening this year. 

This is as much of a disappointment to us as it is for you as we are very proud of Collingwood and always look forward to showing prospective parents and their children around the site to see our staff and students engaged in their lessons.

On a typical visit to Collingwood you would see:

  • An inclusive and stimulating educational environment
  • Happy, well-behaved students that are proud of who they are and have the self-belief to achieve their goals
  • Consistently excellent academic performance
  • Inspirational and dedicated staff
  • Outstanding academic and pastoral teams who ensure all students are fully supported and prepared for the next stage in their education and employment
  • A rich and varied range of leadership and extra-curricular opportunities for students.

We hope to show you as much of this as possible remotely by sharing the videos above*.  Prospective parents can also attend one of our 'Meet the Principal’ sessions (click here to book an appointment).

The voiced PowerPoint presentation containing the content normally presented on Open Evening and videos of students talking about their experiences of Collingwood can be found above.

We hope that these events, plus links here on our website to exam results, the last Ofsted report and our reputation in the local community will provide you with all the information you need to decide that Collingwood is the right choice for your child.
