What if my young person doesn’t achieve their predicted GCSE grades?

Don’t worry! They should bring their results along to their enrolment interview and we will endeavour to find them an appropriate alternative course. Careers advice and guidance will be available throughout enrolment.

We will be on holiday when GCSE results come out, what should we do?
  • Inform the Admissions Team as soon as possible that you are away during enrolment and confirm the holiday dates

  • Liaise with school to have GCSE results emailed on results day

  • Attend the re-arranged enrolment interview with copies of the GCSE results

  • Please note, places will not be reserved for applicants who chose to be on holiday during main enrolment

What if they change their mind about their chosen courses?

We will discuss other course options at enrolment.
