What is OpenOpportunity?

OpenOpportunity is a partnership of Secondary Schools,City College Norwich and Easton College. Over the course of the past 8 years the partnership has developed and run courses for pre and post-16 students in order to widen choices and opportunities available to students. These courses have included A-Levels, Young Apprenticeships and, more recently, Diplomas, BTECs and Foundation Learning programmes.

Over the past few years more and more schools and institutions have chosen to send students to OpenOpportunity courses.

Hello to all students, parents and school staff!

We have been a bit quiet at OpenOpportunity for the last couple of months due to staff illness, but bear with us as we have  lots of exciting news and projects for you. Information will be coming to you very shortly.


Parent/Carer/Student Induction Evening on Thursday 3rd July 2014 for OpenOpportunity courses starting in September 2014

We are inviting you to attend the OpenOpportunity Parent/Carer/Student Induction evening takes on Thursday 3rd July 2014 from 6.00pm at City College Norwich.  The event should end by 7.30pm at the very latest. 

It is recommended that all parents/carers and students starting courses in September attend, as on this evening you will:

  • Meet the OpenOpportunity team and the course leaders
  • Have the chance to try on uniform for sizing purposes
  • Listen to subject tutors outline the year ahead for your child
  • Receive information on term dates, the course structure, how you will be informed about progress, what to do if your child is sick on a course day, etc.

Again we would really like you to attend, but if you are unable to please contact Janette Darbon on 01603 773556 or email

If you come to the College’s main reception you will be directed from there to the designated room.

Parking will be available in the student car park.

As there will be a lot of information to cover during the session, we would appreciate it if you could arrive just before 6.00pm in order to get you signed in and to give you an information pack. 

We are really looking forward to seeing you.
