What happens after I apply?

You will get a confirmation email. You need to check the link to confirm your account. We’ll then keep in touch via emails and texts, so please remember to check them regularly – we don’t want you to miss out! And you’ll receive updates with the exciting things that our current students are taking part in, so you have a taste of what to expect when you join us.

  • KS4 enrolments take place in July – that’s the final part of the process.
  • KS5 enrolment takes place in August, during and after GCSE results day.

We know that for some people this is a long process, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch throughout the year if you have any questions – big or small.

Your first point of call for any query is our admissions team. You can contact them at:
