Step 2 : Interviews

After you have applied for a place at Priestley College you will be invited in for an informal interview. Your parents / guardians can join you for this interview, which will take about 15 to 20 minutes. It will be your chance to ask a tutor more questions about the subjects you are interested in taking and for them to help you make the right decisions. Following an interview you will receive an acceptance pack before moving on to the following stages:
