Events > Year 5 Taster Weekend

What is the Year 5 Taster Weekend?

The Year 5 taster weekend is for young people currently in Year 5 who are interested in considering a place at NCW when they move into Year 7.

The weekend will give families an insight to life at NCW and will allow parents to make a more informed decision about their secondary school choice. A small group of prospective Year 5 students will join us to take part in various activities and assessments and will stay overnight stay in one of our junior houses.

Why should you attend?

The Year 5 Taster Weekend will not only give your family insight to life at the College, but it also give us an opportunity to explore the non-academic elements that your child would be able to undertake if they were to join us in September 2017. As a result of this assessment, we will be able (if appropriate) to provisionally offer a place for September 2017, with a further, more detailed assessment to take place in Year 6 if you decide that NCW is the right decision for your family.

When and Where?

The weekend will be run Saturday 14th to Sunday 15th January 2017, and again on Saturday 6th to Sunday 7th May, at the College in Worcester. (Please choose one date.) For directions and a map click here. The weekend is free of charge.
