Lytham Sixth Form College will combine an open day with an autumn fair for the first time this weekend.

Visitors will be given the opportunity to combine finding out all about the courses available at the college with browsing craft and food stalls and enjoying some family fun.

The college, in Albany Road, Ansdell, has recently celebrated student Lewis Dugdale winning BTEC Performing Arts national Student of the Year while colleague Javaria Jamil came in the top 10 in the country in the Science category.

Associate head Matthew Barr said those and other successes had prompted plenty of interest in attending the college, rated outstanding by Ofsted, for the new 2017-18 year.

“Lewis and Javaria are key examples of many success stories for our students in 2016-17, which have led to lots of interest in our programmes this year,” he said.

“The autumn fair and open day will give eager Year 11 pupils the chance to come and see us early to get a flavour of what we offer and make a decision on what they want to do next year.

“There will be the opportunity to get advice from tutors about our broad range of courses.

“Visitors can also take a tour of the facilities at our campus, while enjoying the stalls and entertainment on offer.

“We have had such attractions at summer and Christmas fairs but this is a first for the open day and we hope visitors enjoy them.”

The event is on Saturday from 10.30am to 2pm.
