A suitable photograph for your student I.D or a camera to take one
Proof of your final grades

So what's next?
We will be emailing all of our applicants in early July with more details about the enrolment process.
This email will have your student I.D number in it so that you can submit your online enrolment form as soon as you have your final grades.
Most students will be receiving their final grades on GCSE results day (Thursday 20th August) and this is when you should aim to submit your enrolment form. If you already have your GCSE results, you can complete your form now.
Please do not submit your form until you have your final results as we will not be able to process your enrolment.
If you have not yet made an application, please apply before completing the online enrolment form.

Frequently asked questions
Q. I can't take a photograph for my student I.D, what should I do?
If you do not have an appropriate photograph to send and cannot take one, please submit your form anyway - we will take your photo at induction, instead.
Q. I can't take a picture of my grades/didn't receive them, what should I do?
If you have your grades via email from your school you can upload the email or document. If you have no way to send them at all, please submit your form without them. We will try to obtain them via your school, which may slow down the process as we cannot confirm your enrolment until we have your grades.
Q. I'm home schooled or left school so don't have any qualifications, can I still apply?
Of course you can, select a course you like the sound of and we will start you on a foundation or level 1. You can work towards a higher level until you achieve your goal.
Q. I don't have the grades for the subject I want to do, should I pick it anyway?
Please don't do this, make sure you check the course options and requirements to select a course that is suitable both for your grades and interests. You can work towards getting the grades you need this year so you can select it next year.
Q. I've changed the course I want to do since my interview, do I need to reapply or have another interview?
There is no need to reapply or attend another interview, just select the new course you want to do on the enrolment form.
Q. I need additional learning support and have an EHCP, what should I do?
Make sure you tick the EHCP box on the form. Shortly after enrolment a member of the support team will be in touch, either before your induction or during induction week. If you have not previously told us about your EHCP we may take a while longer to process your enrolment while we clairify your EHCP details with your local borough.
Q. Is it too late for my friend to apply to enrol?
Not at all, they can make an application here where they will be given a temporary student ID they can use to enrol online.
Q. I can't complete the enrolment form, can I come in instead?
If there is absolutely no way you can complete the form online and you have already been offered a place, please contact us using the button above.
Q. My friend didn't attend an interview and was still invited to enrolment, could I lose my place to them?
Students who were made offers at interviews have priority over new applications or students who did not attend an interview event.
However, we have expanded our capacity and there should be a place available for most students who want to study with us, provided they you have the entry requirements needed for your chosen course.
Q. I have been offered a course I didn't apply for, is this a mistake?
There are a number of scenarios that may result in us offering you different course from the one you applied for. This could be due to course cancellation, a course being full, incompatible grades and more. If you are not happy with this decision you can speak to your tutor at induction and ask for a transfer - transferring to a different course will not put your place at risk.
If you believe we have simply made a mistake, please let us know via the contact us tab above. Please be aware that we will be unable to deal with these requests immediately, however we will do our best to ensure that there is a place for you available on the course of your choice.
