How to Apply

Applying to Collyer’s is a straightforward process: 

Step 1: Attend an Open Evening

Visit the College and talk to staff and students. Parents and guardians are very welcome to attend. Please visit our Open Evenings  page for dates and details.

Step 2: Complete an Online Application

Applications for 2021 entry will open after the November Open evenings and a link to the online application system will appear here.

We will accept late applications on an individual basis, subject to availability at the time of application.

Step 3: Attend an Interview

At interview, academic staff will give you advice and guidance on appropriate subjects and different types of study.

Students at a partner school will be interviewed at their school in February / March 2021. Collyer’s will send an invitation to you via email. All other students will be invited to interview at Collyer’s on 9th February 2021. The College will send an invitation to you via email.

Successful applicants will receive a provisional offer at the end of their interview (subject to final GCSE grades and a satisfactory reference).

Step 4: Attend a Welcome Day

All successful applicants will be invited to attend a Welcome Day on either 28th or 29th June 2021.

Students will be able to learn more about different subject areas through taster sessions, meet an enrolment advisor, make changes to their subject choices, and be given details of the arrangements for the start of term.
