Online Enrolment Process
This year we have moved our entire enrolment process online for a completely digital process. If you would like to know why and how it affects you, please continue to read this page.
Why We Have Made This Decision
In short, it is to keep everybody safe. The less people we have in one place the better and since we have such a small window to get everyone enrolled we have opted for a remote enrolment process. This will give students and staff the option to complete the enrolment process entirely from home.
A Longer Induction Period to Get to Know You Better
We acknowledge that losing face-to-face interaction removes some of the personable elements of enrolment and give us less time to get to know you. That's why we have extended our induction period to several weeks.
During this time we will get better understanding of who you are and the best way that we can teach you.
Grades and Autumn Exams
We understand many of you will have received grades that you do not agree with and may be aiming to appeal.
However, we will only be able to enrol you on to subjects that match your current achievement. In some instances we maybe able to move some students to a higher qualification if they display aptitude beyond what their grades indicate. Such decisions will be made during or after induction, once we have had some time to get familiar with who you are and how you work.
More Time to Feel-Out Your Chosen Course
This extension of induction means you have more time to decide what course is right for you. Don't like the course you initially chose? No problem! Let your tutor know and we will transfer you to a more suitable level or course.
Expert and Impartial Advice
Not sure what course or career to pursue? Once you are enrolled and started at college you will have access to our admissions course advisors, our careers advisors and our impartial advisors from Prospects.
Educational Health Care Plans (EHCP)
If you have an EHCP please ensure you tick the relevant box on your enrolment form. If you don't we may not be able to ensure you get the support you need. If you do have an EHCP it may take us a while longer to get back to you as we will need to confirm we have the correct details with your borough.
See You Soon!
It is a strange time, we have taken this decision to try and meet the needs of everyone involved. Please bare with us as we find our feet and help you find yours in this new world of ours.
We look forward to meeting you on site when lessons begin. Until then, stay safe and drop us an email if you have any questions that can't be answered by the FAQ.
