What happens when


We’ll send you a letter inviting you to an informal interview. There’s nothing to worry about, our friendly staff will sit and talk with you and your parent/guardian about your ambitions and why you have chosen that course. This is just to make sure you’re starting on the right course for you, and that the course is at the right level to match your aims and abilities.

Year 11 Welcome Days

Students will receive a letter in the post inviting them to their allocated Welcome Day. Welcome Days are a chance for all Year 11’s joining us in September to come and meet the peers who will be in their classes with them, an ice breaker type of day, to have a taste of what is to come. They will spend a few hours here getting to know their new classmates and tutors, plus their surroundings and a more detailed run down of what they can expect in September.
