If you have a conditional offer
Do not worry - your place with us from September 2020 is secure. The Government have now announced that GCSE grades will be awarded based on student's previous GCSE work, including classwork, non-exam assessments, mock results and any other record of student performance. GCSE results day will go ahead as planned on Thursday 20th August.
The main thing to keep in mind is that your place with us is safe and we will work to find the best course for you.
At this point it is difficult to know whether our taster days scheduled for the end of June will be going ahead, as this will depend on how long schools and colleges are kept open for and what rules are in place at the time. We will update you when we have new information on this.
If you have applied and are awaiting your interview appointment
As we are unable to hold on-site interviews at the moment we will be basing offers on application and school reference alone. We have received a high number of applications and are reviewing each application individually, so this process may take a while. This delay will not affect any applicant's chances of gaining a place with us. We thank you for your patience. We will be sending offers to applicants via email and text.
Please be assured that your chances of receiving an offer of a place with us will not be affected by the delay.
If you have attended an interview and we are waiting for your school reference
The admissions team will continue to work remotely and will continue to chase any missing references. We expect teachers to continue to check and respond to emails while schools are closed, so we hope references will continue to be sent to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Once we have received a satisfactory reference we aim to notify you by text and email to confirm that you have received a conditional offer.
