If you have a conditional offer
Do not worry - your place with us from September 2020 is secure, and this will remain the case no matter what is decided in terms of how GCSEs are awarded. At this moment in time we have no further information on the government strategy with awarding qualifications, but once they have given more detail we will assess how this might impact our course entry requirements and update you as soon as we can.
The main thing to keep in mind is that your place with us is safe and we will always work to find the best course for you.
At this point it is difficult to know whether our taster days scheduled for the end of June will be going ahead, as this will depend on how long schools and colleges are kept open for. We will update you when we have new information on this.
If you have applied and are awaiting your interview appointment
As the college has now closed we have had to postpone any further interview evenings for the time being. We hope to continue with interviews once we have reopened, however, this will depend on how long the government decides to keep schools and colleges closed for. Should they remain closed for a long period of time we will reassess our method of interviewing and accepting applicants. We intend to keep you updated should there be any changes.
Please be assured that your chances of receiving an offer of a place with us will not be affected by the delay.
If you have attended an interview and we are waiting for your school reference
The admissions team will continue to work remotely and will continue to chase any missing references. We expect teachers to continue to check and respond to emails while schools are closed, so we hope references will continue to be sent to us at email@example.com
. Once we have received a satisfactory reference we aim to notify you by text and email to confirm that you have received a conditional offer.

remains open and we will be processing and reviewing applications remotely. Interviews have been put on hold for now, with the idea that they will begin again once we return from the break.

Our admission team will be working remotely from Friday 20th March. If you have any queries, the best way of contacting us will be by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
