Student Application Form 2021


PLEASE NOTE: When filling out your application you will be asked for your predicted grades. Don’t worry if you aren’t sure or don’t have predicted grades at this stage. What we ask is that you input the realistic grades you aspire to achieve if all goes to plan with your GCSEs.

Also, it is important to remember you will have several opportunities to change your subject choices before starting with us in September. In other words, the choices you put down on your application form are not final.

What happens next

Due to the pandemic we held our open events virtually in 2020 and 2021. We thought you might find it useful to hear the presentation given by Principal James Gresty at these events.

What happens next
Your admissions interview

After you have applied you will be invited to attend our next available interview evening.  This is an informal but helpful part of the process which allows you to discuss your options and make better informed decisions.

Welcome Day

Once you have accepted an offer to study at Priestley you will be invited to one of our Welcome Days in July.  This will be an opportunity to sample lessons and meet the teachers and students you may share lessons with.

Choices Day

This event is an opportunity to discuss your choices after receiving your GCSE results and is currently planned for Thursday 26 August.


You will make your final decisions about the subjects and courses you will take at Priestley at enrolment. This will take place between Thursday 26 August and Friday 3 September.

Term starts

Following a successful enrolment your first day at Priestley will be Monday 6 September.
