Find Your Place

What happens after you apply

Next steps after applying...

After submitting your application form, you will receive a letter confirming that it has been received and that a place has been guaranteed for you at Palmer's College. This is a conditional offer based on you obtaining the required grades to undertake the course you wish to study, eg. 2 Bs and 4Cs to undertake an A-level programme.

1st Meeting

You will then be invited for your first of three interviews at the College between November and April. The first interview is an informal meeting to discuss your application and the subjects you wish to take.

2nd Meeting

The second interview is part of the Palmer's Day One event held in Summer, where over 1000 students who have applied to Palmer's College are invited to hear about the courses they wish to take or are interested in taking, tour round the College, meet their personal tutor and fellow students. In the afternoon new students are informally interviewed by their personal tutors.

3rd Meeting

The final interview takes place after you have had your GCSE results and forms part of the enrolment process at the end of August. Here, we will discuss whether the results you obtained will enable you to undertake the programme of study of your choice. If you wish to study a different A-level subject/vocational course, then this is your chance to tell us.

If your grades do not meet the entry criteria, the College will try to find you the right course at the right level.


Enrolment for new students will take place immediately after GCSE results are out starting on the afternoon of Thursday 24 August, then all day on both Friday 25 August and Tuesday 29 August.
