Complete on-line application
Applications are made online via the College website. Please do not rush, as it is important that you make the appropriate choice of programme and subjects. This works on an annual cycle: Applications open immediately after the October Open Evenings and close at the end of January, for entry the following September
When applications are Open, you will find the Apply Now link on the Home Page in the Applications section, or in the Latest Announcements section 'Online Applications Now Open' and then you will be able to click on the 'Submit Application' link.
Carefully complete the various sections on the form, giving as much detail as you can. You should apply for just one of the two programmes of study (i.e. A Levels or Advanced Foundation Programme). If you are unsure which to apply for, please do not be concerned, as if your choice later proves unsuitable, this can be changed as part of our interview process.
When you have applied, if you realise that you have made a mistake please DO NOT submit a second application as this can cause confusion. You should email the Admissions Office and explain the changes that you wish to make. email@example.com
