The deadline for applications is 31st January 2017, although partner schools may set their own deadline. Late applications may still be considered in extenuating circumstances, however, they are likely to be subject to Subject restrictions. Very late applications will only be given consideration in late August after the GCSE results are published and preliminary enrolment numbers known.
Monday 13th March to Thursday 16th March 2017
Interviews will be conducted at College during working hours and will provide you with comprehensive IAG (Information, Advice and Guidance) to ensure that you chose a study programme to suit your individual needs.
Parents/Guardians are most welcome to accompany you to the interview.
Further interviews for late applications will be scheduled for the summer term.
Keeping In Touch
After your interview we know you need to focus on your studies so we will only contact you if absolutely essential. We are here if you need any information, advice or guidance, of course. You can log into your online application for updates to your application status and enrolment interview appointment here.
During our Freshers’ Days on either Monday 26th June or Tuesday 27thJune 2017 you will be able to sample taster lessons in your chosen subjects as well as in other subjects that may be of interest to you. It will also give you an opportunity to experience the friendly College atmosphere, look around our facilities and meet some of our teachers.
There will also be an Evening Event at the College for you and your parents/guardians to experience the College environment, discuss future career plans and explore the range of additional opportunities that the College offers in terms of clubs, societies, sport, music, drama and dance. Parents/guardians will also learn how best to support you at College.
We know that in the past students have really enjoyed and gained a great deal from taking part in Fresher’s so we encourage you to keep these dates free. If you have a prior commitment we understand, however, and will provide you with information you need to join us in September.
GCSE results day is on Thursday 24 August 2017
You do not need to bring your results in to College on this day.
If you wish to change your Subject(s) as a result of your grades achieved, you may discuss this option during your enrolment interview.
A telephone helpline will be available for other enquiries.
Late August/Early September
You and your parents/guardians will attend an interview at the College to confirm your enrolment. This should take between 40 and 60 minutes.
If you cannot attend the interview and you have not achieved the required grades for the Subject(s) you have chosen, you must attend an alternative enrolment interview when you are available to discuss an alternative programme of study.
Induction marks the start of your year at the College.
The Induction process will take approximately 3 hours, during which time you will collect your timetable and your ID card and have a one to one meeting with a coach.
