Step-By-Step: How To Apply

Your application is now late. The deadline for applications was 20 April 2018 (extended from the original deadline of 30 March). The College is still accepting applications, but students should be aware of the procedures for dealing with late applicants. We should be able to offer places to late applicants in most subjects, but where places are restricted, priority will be given to applicants who met the published deadline of 20 April 2018. Late applications received from 2 June 2018 are being held until enrolment in August 2018. In cases where a subject is over-subscribed, applications received between 21 April and 1 June 2018 will be allocated ahead of those making very late applications (i.e. received from 2 June 2018 onwards). Young people and families moving into the area should contact the Admissions Office for individual advice on 0121 709 7803 or email the Admissions Office. In order to apply, students must visit Tyber and register for an account. They can then apply via this account and login to check the status of their application.

For those who have offers, invitations for enrolment interviews have gone out in the post. Students are being asked to attend at a specific time on a specific date. Anyone unable to make their appointment is asked to call Admissions urgently on 0121 704 2581 to make alternative arrangements. An Enrolment Guide was included with the invitation and can also be downloaded here.

Applying to join the College could not be easier. Here is a step-by-step guide to the application process.


Step One

Apply online via our bespoke information portal Tyber. You will be asked to set up an account first, which means you can log in at any time and check the status of your application. Please ensure you check this and your email regularly, as this is how we will communicate with you.


Step Two

We will send you confirmation that your application has been received within two weeks.


Step Three

We will contact your school for a reference.


Step Four

If your application indicates you will meet our entry criteria, we will email you to invite you to an interview. At the interview we will discuss your application and your subject choices. Interviews are allocated on a ‘first come first served’ basis, so please do not worry if there is a delay in arranging your appointment. Missed interviews are not routinely rescheduled unless students get in touch to explain their absence and re-arrange it.


Step Five

All being well, we will make you a written offer of a place at the College. We will ask you to confirm acceptance of the offer, which you can do by logging into your account on Tyber.


Step Six

You will be invited to attend Welcome to College Day in the summer, where you can get a taste of College life. If you wish to enrol at the College it is essential you attend this event and failure to attend can put your place at risk.


Step Seven

We will write to you over the summer with details about enrolment, which will take place after GCSE results are known. It is important that you attend on the date and time you have been given and bring evidence of all GCSE/level 2 results, including those qualifications taken early.


Step Eight

After enrolment, you will have an induction day and then your studies can start. Attendance at the first week of lessons and evidence of achieving our entry criteria before the end of the first full week of teaching are both required in order for your enrolment to be complete.
