Open Events 2020/21


Virtual Open Event
New College Pontefract held its first ever live “virtual” Open Evening on November 18 2020. The event included presentations and live Q&A sessions from every subject area, as well as important other teams such as the Progress Tutors, study support, careers and the LRC.

During the event itself, people were able to join any of the live Q&A sessions at any time between 5pm and 8pm. 

A purpose-built website, where you can watch subject videos and take a virtual tour of the college is now available and can be accessed at

Future Events
Our next event that was planned for Thursday 11 February has been postponed. We have set a provisional date of Wednesday 28 April for our next event. We hope that this can be a traditional event held at the college, but this depends on the pandemic situation. Please keep checking the website and social media for more details. In the meantime, you can still visit to get more information about our courses and take a virtual tour of our site. Due to this being after the college’s application deadline, we encourage you to apply now so that you have met the deadline. You still have many opportunities to change courses after you have applied. Applying will allow us to invite you to one of our interview evenings where you can discuss subject choices in more detail.
