Entry requirements for academic subjects

  • 5 A* – C grades at GCSE including a minimum of grade 4 in English and maths

You will need a grade B at GCSE or equivalent in the subjects you want to study. We would advise a grade 7 for maths and a grade 8 for further maths. Exceptional circumstances will be considered.

If you do not have a grade 4 in English and maths, part of your timetable will be re-sit classes to support you to improve your grade. This is a government requirement and would apply whether you stay with us, embark on a full-time college course or take up an apprenticeship.

  • All students also require a reference from their current school or academy
