We will check your results and subject list, including your requested subject choices. We will email to let you know if we can confirm your place when this check has been completed by 16:00 on [day after GCSE Results Date].

Include with the 3.1 Personal Details email, an electronic copy of your official school results.

The electronic copy could be either a scan or photograph of your results sheet, but if is a photograph, it must be clear and legible.

Your scanned copy of results must include;

If you used a chosen name to apply to the Sixth Form, your email must make clear what this name was.

Do not delay sending us your results to get this number, but please be aware we will need this from you. If you studied at an Independent School, and have not had a UCI issued, please indicate this in your email.

• your results information, including the level and subject title and result
Please indicate in your email any results that are not full course GCSE’s – for instance, you and your school may know that “BT2” is a “BTEC Level 2 Diploma”, but we may not.
