Community Days

Division Head: Erin Waks

The Castle Community Day division aims to engage with the local community, allowing nearby residents to enjoy our colleges resources and access the Castle. We run termly events, as opposed to the weekly activities of most other divisions. This means it is a fantastic way to get involved with college, even if you don’t have time for a regular commitment, and is extremely rewarding.

Events usually take place at Christmas, Easter and during the Summer term, and are often themed. For instance, last year we had a Christmas themed event, where children could partake in arts and crafts activities, go on treasure hunts and have student-led tours of the Castle. We have plans for 3 events this year, and would love to get as many enthusiastic volunteers as possible!
