When will I hear about the outcome of my application?

We will write to advise you we have received your application. We will then contact your school and arrange an interview. If successful you will receive an offer by post. Please note that all courses offered are subject to demand.

What happens next?

The final stage of the application process is confirming whether or not you wish to take up a place at The Skills Academy. When you receive your offer letter you will be asked to return an acceptance slip. Once this has been returned you place at The Skills Academy is reserved.


All places will be confirmed in writing, stating the subject of your chosen pathway. The letter will state full details of the Induction programme that will be run on the first week academic year for Year 12 students. The pack will also include information of the bursary, free school meals and other helpful information.
