  • Temporary ID Badges

    From 2nd June onwards all students requiring a temporary ID badge will be charged a refundable deposit of £1.  The money will be refunded when the temporary ID is returned to Student Services.  It has become necessary to take this step due to the number of temporary ID badges not being returned and having to replace the plastic wallets/clips at a considerable expense.

  • North Yorkshire County Council - Post 16 Transport

    Below is the link to the North Yorkshire County Council - Post 16 Transport information for 2014-15.  Please read the letter, then if want to apply, follow the instructions to apply online.

  • Parking in the college locality

    Please will drivers be more considerate when parking in the college locality, particularly the streets around Barwic Parade.  There have been complaints from college neighbours about cars blocking their drives and also making it very difficult for the buses to get past.

    The neighbours have threatened to go to the authorities which could result in fines and penalty points for cars parking inconsiderately.  There is also the substantial risk of cars being damaged by the buses attempting to pass them on the narrow roads.

  • Take Part in 'On Our Turf'

    THE MONUMENT – Take Part

    Would you like to be involved in turning Easingwold, Selby, Helmsley and Pocklington into topsy-turvy Live Art towns?

    Since January 2014 artist Selina Thompson has been getting to know our Yorkshire market towns in order to create one of the most spectacular arts events. And she would love for you to come and help.

    The Monument is a weekend of performance and visual art, turning participants from four communities into the architects and builders of their very own live art towns.

    The Monument celebrates the everyday. Not the mundane acts which fill our schedules with trips to the supermarkets and takeaways in front of Saturday night TV, but the moments of human life which creep up and astound us: birth and death, falling in love, beginning a family and following or not following your hopes and dreams.

    These rights of passage will be mapped through performance, installation and spectacle to create a journey through four market towns now unrecognisable from their former selves. Selina will work closely with individuals and groups in each town, beginning with Easingwold, to encourage the development of a series of live art works performed and created by members of the community.

    There are a multitude of opportunities for you to get involved. All of these roles are designed to make use of the skills and talents already available in your town, and help to build and teach skills to those who are interested.

    There are four teams of volunteers we are looking to fill:

    Creative and Cast

    We are looking for writers, performers, directors and anybody interested in having creative input towards this huge spectacle. 

    Makers and Designers

    We need a strong team of makers with specific skills, including: carpentry, painting, craft, embroidery, flower arranging, willow weaving and anything else where you use your hands!

    We also need three designers who will work with Selina to create the visual concepts within The Monument. These people will work on creating art in trees, shops, pub cellars, libraries, town squares, cars and much more.

    Marketing and Publicity

    If you’re interested in photography, graphic design, publicity, film, social media and PR there are a variety of opportunities to get involved with helping shout about The Monument and making sure as many people get to experience the production as possible.

    Producing and Production

    We are look for two Assistant Producers who are looking to gain skills in events and arts management, to work closely with Producer Emma Beverley throughout the process and help get The Monument on its feet practically. No experience required, just an organisational mind and a patient personality.

    No matter how much time you are able to give, even if it’s just two hours one Sunday afternoon, we would love to hear from you. Everybody who expresses an interest in any of these opportunities will be able to take part – we can’t wait to hear from you.

    If any of these roles are of interest, or if you have any questions, please get in touch with Emma Beverley, producer for The Monument on emmabevfreelance@gmail.comand we will send you more detailed role descriptions straight away.

  • College Car Park:

    The College car park has the capacity for 315 vehicles on site plus numerous additional disabled parking spaces.

    This was the maximum limit set for us by the local planning department when developing the new college campus. We do in fact have more spaces per head than several other local colleges.

    For obvious safety reasons, the College has a 10mph maximum speed limit on campus, however, a persistent minority choose to ignore any signs and the only way to adequately control speed is via speed humps.

    We have tried to manage speed on site without speed humps in the past, but without success. Short of policing the car park at a significant cost to all that park on campus, speed humps remain our only economic solution to successful traffic calming.

    We remind all drivers to remain alert and mindful of pedestrian safety while driving in and around the campus

  • Priority LRC Computer Use

    Now that E05 is available for timetabled lesson use, there will be some changes to ensure effective utilisation of the 61 computers in the LRC. Please note that from Monday 7 October priority, timetabled pc reservations in the LRC will be held for just 5 minutes from the lesson start-time.

    This means that students wishing to use their timetabled LRC independent study slot who know they will be late arriving need to make LRC staff aware of their estimated arrival time to guarantee a pc will be available for them at the later time. Sorry but there can be no guarantee a pc will be available for those who arrive late and have not notified LRC staff in advance.

    For those wishing to work using LRC computers in their ‘free’ study time, the best time to check LRC pc availability from Monday will be around 10 minutes after lesson start times as this is when any ‘spare’ computers will be released. Drop-in availability will improve as a number of classes that were timetabled in the LRC have been relocated to E05.

  • Students Charging Phones/Laptops etc.

    Please note, students are NOT allowed to plug anything electrical in to power sockets in college.  This includes charging phones, laptops etc.  All portable electrical equipment in college must pass a test before it can be plugged in; this is to ensure that the equipment is safe to use.  Any equipment found plugged in will be removed and taken to Student Services.

    Moodle is one of the ways that Selby College uses to communicate with students.  On this front page you will find news items, notices, events and messages. Don't forget to check on a regular basis so that you know what's happening in college.
