Our usual admissions process has been changed this summer due to the impact of coronavirus. The main changes are that admissions interviews will take place over the phone and we will not be able to stage a Welcome Day. However, alternative arrangements have been made to ensure young people can still make well-informed decisions about the courses they study at Priestley.

What happens next..

After you have applied for a place at Priestley College you will be contacted to carry out an admissions interview over the phone. This is an informal but helpful part of the process which allows you to discuss your options further and make better decisions.

Choices Day

There is one final opportunity to discuss your programme choices at Priestley at the end of August once GCSE results have been published. This is on Monday 24 August between 1pm and 3pm.


You will make your final decisions about the subjects and courses you will take at Priestley at registration. This takes place from Tuesday August 25 through to Thursday August 27. Your first day at Priestley will be Monday September 7 starting at 8.45am.
