Queries:

I haven't applied yet but I would like to

  • It isn't too late to apply! Please complete a paper application form and drop it in to reception with a copy of your results (we can do that for you if required) and we will contact you with further instructions once we have looked at your application (please note that this may be over a weekend).

What do I need to bring to enrol?

  • Applicants must bring a copy of their results with them or we won’t be able to enrol, this includes any done in previous years.

What do I do if I'm running late?

  • Come in as soon as possible, or call to rearrange. If you do not come to your enrolment appointment (without informing us previously) we will phone you at the end of the day to rearrange your appointment. 

What do I do if I can't make my appointment?

  • If you are unable to attend your appointed session, please contact us as soon as possible and we will give you a new time and date.

I am not available at all until enrolment has ended

  • You may send another trusted person in your place, preferably over the age of 18. You must provide them with a signed letter from you, giving permission for them to enrol on your behalf. The letter must include a list of chosen courses plus reserve options.
