Your place on some courses at the College depends on the outcome of your GCSE results. As soon as you know your grades, tell us by completing this contact form.

If you have already received a conditional or unconditional offer from us and are concerned about your GCSE grades - please do not worry; we can still offer you a place to study with us. Depending on your results, we will always help select the right course for you.

Applicants for some full-time courses and apprenticeships will be invited to an interview to make sure the course is right for your career choice and to assess your learning needs. Interviews can be online or face-to-face and we will send you an invitation by email or letter.

After your interview we will usually offer you a place on the right course for you, depending on your qualifications or predicted grades and subject to satisfactory references.

If you are a current student at Capel Manor College and plan to progress with us to a new course, you are not required to submit an application. Please liaise with your course tutor or the Admissions team for further information.

You can enrol online through the online account you will have created when submitting an application on our website. If a place is available you will be instructed on how to enrol right away, if not you will receive further information regarding next steps once your place is secure.

You must be fully enrolled in order to start your course or attend the College.

If you would like to discuss the courses we offer, use our live chat to speak directly to our friendly Admissions team. Alternatively, complete our enquiry form and a member of our team will be in touch shortly.

Achieving good English and maths skills is essential to compete in today’s job market. They are also essential for studying other subjects as all courses require students to apply English and maths skills in their work.

Since 2014, by law, all students aged 16 to 18 without at least a Grade 4, or a grade C, in both English and maths at GCSE must keep studying these subjects as part of their study programme.

Capel Manor College supports all 16 to 18 year old students in achieving a GCSE in English and maths. If you do not have a grade 4 or grade C in these subjects already, you will be enrolled on to GCSE courses. In a minority of cases, some students may be enrolled to a Certificate in English and/or maths in preparation for GCSE study if this is appropriate.

When you enrol with us, we ask for copies of your exam certificates if you have already taken formal exams. The grade you achieve in your GCSE English and maths will determine whether you will be enrolled on English and maths courses at the College. Classes are planned to align with your main course, and are taught by specialist subject teachers.
