Admissions to the College are coordinated by Plymouth City Council. Parents can apply for up to 3 secondary schools for a place for their child, and rank them in order of preference (please refer to Plymouth City Council’s ‘The Next Step Parents Guide’ for further details).

Year 7 - 180

Year 8 - 180

Year 9 - 180

Year 10 - 180

Year 11 - 180

A child with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) which names the College will be admitted. In the event of over-subscription, Plymouth City Council will apply the following admission criteria in order of priority:

1. Looked after children and all previously looked after children.

2. Children with exceptional medical or social grounds.

3. Children with a sibling already attending the College at the time of admission.
