Step 3: Advice and Guidance Interviews

Shortly after receiving your application, we will invite you to an Advice and Guidance Interview. These are informal, 30-minute sessions held on the Long Road campus taking place throughout the Spring term.

Your interview 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 welcome to attend your interview with you.

If you have not received an invite to your Advice and Guidance Interview by the end of March 2020 please contact our Admissions Team on or 01223 631100.

Step 4: Offer to study

Within 4 working weeks of your Advice and Guidance Interview, you will be emailed an offer of study. Your offer will be conditional on achieving the minimum entry requirements for each subject you have applied to study.

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 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.
