Direct Entry and new Electively Home Educated (EHE) students will be invited in to an enrolment appointment before the start of term.

Skills Academy students will enrol in their department on their first day.

We understand that your future plans may change, and you may still not be sure on what career path to take.

If you are attending our Skills Academy provision and would like to apply for a different course then you need to speak to your school about this first.

The new term starts Tuesday 1 September 2020, however due to the current Covid-19 situation we will be operating staggered start dates and times. Your tutor will provide all the details about your induction and timetable at the point of enrolment.
