It is extremely important that you continue to check your emails. This is how we will share updates and information with you regarding starting college, your application and future events. Over the next few months we will be inviting you to take part in various activities that we will deliver to you virtually. One of these events will be your Student Induction Day at the end of June. We will also be providing you with a number of opportunities to ask our Admissions Team questions.

Virtual Student Induction Day
Monday 29th June
More information coming soon.
The current situation means work towards your GCSEs has stopped, and many students have approached the college to see if there is anything they could be doing to prepare for level 3 study at the college. In response to these requests, our teachers have put together some suggested reading and tasks which will prepare you for your A-Level or vocational courses in September.
While this work will certainly be beneficial to you, it is not compulsory and does not form part of the course assessment. Entry onto all courses at Ashton Sixth Form College will be, as always, conditional upon your GCSE results and completion of this work will not replace our usual entry requirements. Given that some students might not enrol for the course they have applied for, we would advise against spending lots of money on resources prior to enrolling in college - many of the suggested resources in this document are free of charge.
We hope that you find this transition work useful and interesting and look forward to meeting you at enrolment.
Q: How will my GCSE exams be marked?
A: The government has released guidance on how your GCSE exams will be marked. You can read this in full here.
Q: Will my college place be affected because I have not sat any exams?
A: No, the grades you receive will have the same status as those awarded in previous years and therefore your place will not be affected. Your place is subject to you achieving the college entry requirements which are listed here.
Q: When is results day?
A: The government have stated that GCSE results day will take place "on 20 August, as originally planned. This will enable progression to higher and further education to take place in the normal way."
Q: When will I enrol at college?
A: Currently, Enrolment is due to take place on the 20th and 21st August. Any information about enrolment will be communicated to you via email.
