GCSE Results can be collected from the college between 9.00am—11.00am
Sixth Form Enrolment and confirmation of your place within the Sixth Form will happen on Thursday 24th August, once you have collected your GCSE results. Where students have met the entry requirements for the Sixth Form and the subjects they have selected to study, there will be an online form to complete from home. Entry requirements can be found under the Sixth Form tab on our website. Enrolment will close at 4pm on Friday 25th August. Please ensure you have enrolled by this deadline in order to secure your place. Late applications to enrol will only be accepted subject to the availability of places and we are expecting to be oversubscribed this year so encourage you to enrol early. Course places are subject to spaces in the class being available, as well as entry requirements. Please enrol early to avoid disappointment. For students who have not met the Areté entry requirements for the subjects they would like to study, there will be a slip in the results envelope asking you to stay on the College site for further discussion in E5 (the computer suite)

Rob King, Principal, said “Having had their GCSE exams cancelled in 2021, the last two years have been extremely challenging for this year’s Year 13. The students and their teachers have worked so hard to overcome these complications, further develop a passion for their subjects and prepare well for the summer examinations. It is then extremely pleasing to see them rewarded for their character and resilience with outstanding grades today”.

These excellent results will lead students into interesting further education opportunities and exciting careers of the future. We look forward to hearing about your further success in the years to come.”
