Entry Requirements

Our college entry requirements are 5 GCSE grades 4-9 or equivalent, and one of these must be English Language or Mathematics (grades A*-C for any unreformed GCSE’s).

Please check the individual requirements for each subject on the course pages. Some subjects require additional grades in related GCSE subjects. We will consider BTEC courses as ONE GCSE equivalent as long they are at Merit or Distinction level or above at Level 2.

Subject specific requirements are subject to continual review post results each year and are therefore subject to change up to enrolment.

While we endeavour to honour these basic requirements, the college reserve the right to look at students’ overall prior attainment.

Similarly in some very exceptional circumstances, requirements may be relaxed, but subject staff would need evidence of relevant prior knowledge.
