  • Pupils need to bring their own equipment, but if they can't, we will provide some and it will stay at school for their sole use.
  • Pupils must bring their own drinks and snacks and there will be no access to vending machines or catering facilities.
  • Pupils must wear school uniform and are encouraged to change out of it, and have it washed as soon as they're home in readiness for the next week. If that's not possible, it must be hung up away from other clothes where nobody will touch it.
  • Pupils are welcome to wear masks if they wish, but these can’t be provided by school.

Runshaw College Future Ready Virtual Open Event - Mon, 22 June

Added 18.6.20 & 24.6.20

In normal circumstances, over the next few weeks Year 10 would have been visiting the local colleges’ annual taster days. These are always enjoyable days which give pupils a real taste of life at college. 

In the absence of being able to hold physical taster days this year, Runshaw College has put together a Year 10 Future Ready Virtual Event which takes place on Monday, 22 June. This will include information about the different pathways students can take at Runshaw College, videos from staff and students to learn more about the courses on offer, as well as a virtual 3D tour of the college. 

Below is the event invitation which provides more information and explains how you can register. We encourage you to sign up for the event which we hope will help you to start thinking about your steps after Priory.
