Take the opportunity to experience two courses of your choice at our Taster Day for Year 10s!

You'll be able to get a taste of what student life is like at Plumpton College and this day will introduce you to our environment with the chance to try two courses you're considering studying with us in September 2024. You'll learn about what's involved in completing the course and the split between academic work and the development of technical skills. It'll be a great chance to meet your tutors and other prospective students.

The core Taster Day is from 9.15am - 4.00pm, with the opportunity to book one morning session and one afternoon session.

Numbers are limited for each session, so please research the courses you're interested in carefully before your spot as these can't be changed before the event!



  • The AM sessions will be from 9.15am to 12pm.
  • Lunch is 12pm to 12.45pm.
  • Drop off and pick up is from 12.45pm to 1.15pm.
  • The PM sessions will be from 1.15pm to 4pm.

If you've booked one morning (AM) OR afternoon (PM) session, you only need to be in at the times listed above.

Travelling by car

We will advise nearer the time where to drop off and pick up. Arrival is from 8.45am to 9.10am, and pick up will be from 4.00pm onwards.

To book this service, there will be an add-on option for both buses when you book your order. You will need to book the morning and afternoon bus if you intend to travel using service. Numbers are limited to 50 on each bus service.
