How to Apply
Applying to study at Long Road is as easy as 1, 2, 3…
Step 1: Year 10 Summer Open Evenings
Upcoming Year 10 Open Evenings: June 2021
Explore our beautiful campus, check out our amazing facilities and have your questions answered by our friendly staff.
Our Open Evenings are designed for Year 10 students at the start of their post-16 education journey, but we welcome all to attend. Bring along your friends and family to experience everything Long Road has to offer you.
Step 2: Complete an Online Application
Online applications for September 2021 will open in October 2020.
The deadline for September 2021 study is 12 noon on 15th January 2021. Applications made after this date will be considered but may be placed on a waiting list if the college is oversubscribed.
Long Road welcomes applications from all students, regardless of the school you currently attend. All applications are treated on the same basis, however, the application process differs based on the school you currently attend.
- Applicants who currently study at a Cambridge Area 14 – 19 Partnership school should apply online via MyChoice@16.
- Applicants who do not currently study at a CAP school must apply directly to Long Road. Please click here to start your application.

Step 3: Advice and Guidance Meetings
Shortly after the application deadline (12 January 2021) the online booking will open for our Advice and Guidance Meetings.
Advice and Guidance meetings are informal, 30-minute sessions held virtually via video call taking place throughout the Spring and Summer terms.
Your meeting will be with a member of our friendly teaching staff who will discuss your future career plans, your reasons for choosing your programme of study and find out more about you as an individual. Parents and Carers are encouraged to attend your meeting with you.
Step 4: Offer to study
Shortly after your Advice and Guidance Meeting, your interviewer will update your Long Road Online Services account with your chosen courses and conditional offer. You will be sent a confirmation email detailing your conditional offer, once you have received this confirmation email you need to log in to your Long Road Online Services account to accept the offer.
Accepting your offer to study does not confirm your place as a Long Road student, however, it does mean you will be invited to our Welcome Days.
Please note: applicants can accept and hold offers from multiple colleges before making their final decision on GCSE results day.
Step 5: Welcome Days
Upcoming Welcome Days: June 2021
If you accept your offer to study you will be invited to one of our Welcome Days.
Our Welcome Days are designed to give you a first-hand experience of life as a Long Road student. You will spend the day in timetabled lessons, trying out the subjects you have applied to study with us. This also gives you the opportunity to meet your potential classmates and teachers.
