Choosing the right courses on a 3+1 basis

After we receive your application you will be invited to a Course Advice Session to discuss your initial ideas about the learning programme you would like to follow and the mix of core subjects and broadening courses which will suit you. Your final decisions will be made when you enrol at the College, after you have received your GCSE results. Whatever your results, do come and talk to us about your opinions.
