A North Yorkshire specialist college is continuing to find new ways to showcase itself to prospective students and their families during the COVID-19 restrictions.

Henshaws Specialist College have already been offering ‘virtual’ tours online for potential students and their families, and they’re now offering bespoke tours out of hours so that students and their families can find out if it is the right choice for them.

Henshaws Specialist College in Harrogate is the only Further Education college in Yorkshire that offers both day and residential programmes up to 365 days per year for students with special educational needs and disabilities.

Henshaws College’s Transitions Manager Henry Inman said:

“Leaving school for college is a major step for any young person but even more so for many of our students who have a wide range of special needs.

“It is, therefore, particularly important that they have an opportunity to visit before deciding if it is the right step for them.”

The bespoke tours are limited to one family at a time after students have left for the day, and must be booked in advance online.

In addition to the bespoke and virtual tours, the College is holding a virtual open day on Wednesday 21st October 2020, when the transitions team will be able to provide advice and guidance to help make choices about the future, including information about the application process and an opportunity to ask questions.

Again, this should be booked online.
