What's on at Grantham College!

With the start of a new academic year, we're making sure to get you all as involved as possible. We have tonnes of events happening throughout September; here is what's on!

We have a lot happening throughout September and we want to get you all as involved as possible! 

We’re kicking off the academic year with a bang with our annual Fresher’s Fair for our new students on Wednesday 5th September. This year’s Freshers Fair will consist of Festival Face-painting, Gladiator Duals, An inflatable bungee run, a photo booth, free sweets and so much more. 

To make this year’s Freshers Fair that much better we’re also holding a competition where you can be in with a chance to win a Fitbit. All you have to do is grab a goody bag at our Freshers Fair and fill it with as many freebies as possible. Then upload a picture of all your freebies alongside your goody bag to Instagram – tag us in the picture: @granthamcollege and give our Instagram a follow and you could be the lucky winner. 

We’re also giving two runner up prizes – with 2ndplace winning £20 worth of High Street vouchers and 3rdplace winning £10 worth of High Street vouchers. 

On the 9th September, we're going to be down at Wyndham Park for their Dawn of a New Era event where the Lottery funded heritage works will be unveiled. Don’t forget to stop by Grantham College’s stand for information on the courses that we offer – you can still apply for a course starting this year. There will also be the Grantham College photo booth so be sure to get your picture taken with our fun props! 


Our annual open events kick off; with our first one being held on Tuesday 11th September between 5pm and 8pm. If you’re unsure of your choice for this year or considering what to do next year or even just looking at options to get back into education then pop in to see us. Our dedicated members of staff will be on hand to talk you through all your options, the different courses we offer and of course there’ll be free sweets! If you’re looking to see what you could achieve with a full time, part time or even a community learning course – Grantham College has something for you! 


As September continues, so do our events – from the 24th-30th we’ll be taking part in Sexual Health Week. This Sexual Health week will focus on Consent – keep an eye out for our display all about Consent in Nixx.


We're also extremely pleased to announce that our University Centre will be officially open on Wednesday 26th September, with an official opening at 1pm. There'll also be a chance for the public to come and look round the historic Elsham House from 4pm-5pm on the Wednesday. We hope to see you all at our University Centre! 

Finally, at the end of the month, our focus will turn to Charities. We’ll start with Jeans for Genes Day. Held on Friday the 21st September, we’ll have a number of different activities for you to get involved with including a Blue Bake sale, a Blue Photography contest, the Generation Gene event where we’ll embrace the friendly competition of Staff vs Students and of course don’t forget to wear your jeans on the Friday. Look out for the Jeans for Genes badges that we’ll be selling as well! 


As the month draws to a close, we’ll also be joining in the world’s biggest coffee morning in support for Macmillan. Make sure you pop into Nixx between 10am-12pm where there’ll be sweet treats for you to purchase. Grab a coffee and a cake and raise some money for a fantastic cause! 

We'd love to see you all get involved in our events and of course, if there is anything you want to arrange to raise money for Charities then make sure to let us know. We can't wait for you to join us this September and make our September events a huge success! If you haven't applied for September yet, don't worry there is still time.
