How to Apply

The Visit

The process starts by arranging a visit. Please contact our Admissions Manager Tracey Smith to arrange your visit by emailing: or call 01905 763933.

Visits usually run from 11am to 2pm during which we will take you round the campus and answer your questions over lunch. We can also arrange overnight accommodation free of charge, should you need it. Just let us know when you get in touch.

Alternatively, you are welcome to visit the College during one of our Family Days, click here for further information.

The Application Form

The next step is to complete the College application form and inform your Local Authority of your application. We can help you with this.

The Assessment

We will then invite your son or daughter for a residential assessment, when we can give them a taste of College life.

If we think we can meet their assessed needs, we will make a provisional offer and send a full report to the Local Authority to support the funding application.

We run assessments throughout the academic year and can accept new students at any time. However, it is wise to begin the process as early as possible to allow sufficient time for funding to be processed after the assessment. We recommend that potential students attend their assessment at least a year before their intended date, if that is possible.
