Dear Student, Parent / Carer

We are delighted that you have considered Long Road Sixth Form College for your next steps.

We would like to invite you and your child to attend an Advice and Guidance Meeting with us. The Guidance Meetings will be held over two days, 11 and 12 February, and meeting slots will be available to book throughout the school day on each of these days. These meetings will be held from 09:00 am and will end at 16:30 pm. These Guidance Meetings will be held remotely via a video call appointment.

Once booking opens for these slots it will be open to everyone but places are limited and will be open for booking on a first-come-first-served basis. If you are not able to secure an appointment on 11 or 12 February then please do not worry. Your interview date does not affect your offer in any way. Due to the high number of applications received we will be holding additional interviews in March to ensure that everyone can have an opportunity to attend an advice and guidance meeting with us. We will send out more detailed communication about this after this round of meetings have taken place, to those applicants that are affected.

We would like for all Advice and Guidance Meetings to take place with the applicant’s cameras and microphones on. This will ensure that we can engage with our applicants face to face, and have a focused and meaningful conversations, as well as understand your individual future aims and ambitions to ensure that each and every applicant can make the best-informed decisions about their futures with us.

We will be using an online appointment booking system, School Cloud. This will allow you to choose your own virtual appointment times with a specialist member of staff and you will receive an email confirming your appointment once it is booked. You will only be allowed to book one appointment per applicant per parent/carer.

Booking now open!

Appointments can be made from today, 25 January 2021. Appointment booking will close at midday on 1 February 2021

How do I book an Advice and Guidance Meeting?

Please visit https://longroad.schoolcloud.co.uk/ to book your appointment. A guide on how to login, book the appointment and attend the appointment will be emailed to you; if you do not receive this email please contact our Admissions Team – remember to check your spam/junk folder.

You will need to login with the following information:

  • The parent/carer name and email address (this is where the email booking confirmation will be sent)
  • The applicant’s first name (NOT preferred name) and surname as it appears in their application with us
  • The applicant’s date of birth

Your log in details must match exactly the information held on the application with us. If you are unable to find an applicant with the details then it may mean that it does not match how the information is held in the application with us. To ensure that you are able to find the applicant details please login with the following information which is how it appears in our system, followed by a date of birth:

  • Applicant’s First Name(s):«Forename»
  • Applicant’s Surname: «Surname»

When you first log in you will see a list of available interviewers to choose from; you are free to choose a date and time slot from anyone on the list. All our staff are equally highly trained so you can book a meeting with any of our experienced members of our team to discuss your options with us.

You will only be able to book one appointment per student per parent. Our appointment slots are 25 minutes long and the times are fixed. It is important that you attend the appointment on time as video appointments will end automatically at the end of the designated time.

You can give one other parent/carer access to join your video appointment. You can grant this access at the time of booking, or later if required. More information about this can be found in the guide emailed to you by our Admissions Team.

On the day, it is important to log on to the system at least 15 minutes in advance of your meeting to make sure that you are ready when it begins.

We understand that this stage can be thrilling, demanding and sometimes a little daunting, so to support you in having a smooth transition from school to Sixth Form College we have put together a guide on all you need to know about our upcoming Virtual Advice and Guidance Meetings, which you can access here:

You can also download a PDF copy of our preparation booklet here.

If you are unable to book an appointment or have a specific question or concern, please email our friendly Admissions team at admissions@longroad.ac.uk who are here to help.

We are really looking forward to meeting you!

Yours sincerely,

Long Road Admissions Team
