We would be delighted and honoured if you selected The Latimer Arts College as the school of choice for your child! We hope that this page will provide all the information that you need if you are considering making an application to join the College. This page is particularly relevant for those who are applying for places in Year 7 and the Sixth Form for the next academic year. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you wish to have more information.
We are delighted to extend an invitation for you to visit The Latimer Arts College’s Open Evening, which will be held on Thursday 5 October 2023. Students, staff and governors are proud of our success and we would love you to come and visit us so that we can show you why.
As part of the evening, we deliver a formal presentation held in our Masque theatre. This gives an overview of College life, our student achievements and future developments.
Our student ambassadors are always on hand to escort you to any areas that you would like to see. We recommend that your child wears trainers on the evening so that they can participate in our sporting activities.

These tours are popular, and a slot needs to be booked in advance. We would ask that you contact the College on 01536 720300 to make the necessary arrangements.
