Blackpool Sixth enrolment – a quick guide
When do I enrol?
If you have submitted an application, you will receive a letter and information pack in early August that will give your enrolment appointment date and time on one of the two enrolment days. Please do try to come at your allocated time. If you can’t make the particular time but can come at another time on one of the two days, that will be OK. If you are not able to attend on either day and haven’t already told us, please contact the Admissions Team urgently.
What to bring to your enrolment appointment
Please bring your completed enrolment form (the form is provided in the pack you will receive). You need to fill in your exam results and confirm on the form the courses you wish to study – these will be pre-printed with the most recent choices we have for you.
You’ll need to bring all your examination result slips, including any you took before Year 11. You must also bring identification – either your passport or the long version of your birth certificate (please see the information in the pack for more information on this). Unfortunately, we will not be able to confirm your enrolment without the correct identification.
What will happen during your enrolment appointment?
Enrolment is all about making sure that you are on a study programme which meets your needs and sets you up for success. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will help you through the process which will take around an hour in most cases.
Some students come with their parents and some don’t – it’s entirely up to you.
There are four stages to complete.
- Welcome and pre-enrolment advice and guidance for students who require it.
- Data entry – your GCSE results are entered onto our database, your ID checked and photograph taken for your student membership card.
- Subject Advice and Guidance – you will speak to the teachers of each subject you wish to take, who will advise and enrol you.
- Final data entry – your enrolment details will be checked, you will sign up for our catering services, transport and bursary (if applicable) and receive your student membership card.
Please be prepared to have your photo taken as part of the enrolment process as this is used on your membership card.
At your interview and in your offer letter, you will have been given entry criteria for your proposed study programme and we hope that you achieve these grades. These are also available in our prospectus and on the study programmes and course section of our website. If your results are not as expected and you do not meet your entry criteria, please do not worry! Please come to your enrolment appointment and we will have advisors on hand to help you.
Finance and Transport Support
There will be a bursary desk available at your enrolment interview. You can read more about the bursary fund here, or you can download and complete an application form here. You should bring a completed application form to enrolment. We also offer extensive transport support with great deals for students across the whole of the Fylde Coast – click here for more information. We will ask you on the enrolment form to say if you intend to take up any of these transport options and your travel pass can then be sorted before you start with us.
There are plenty of exciting wider opportunities at Blackpool Sixth beyond your studies such as the 6Xtra enrichment and recreation programme; the 6Advance academies and the Excellence Programme for academic high-fliers and extensive work experience programmes. You’ll be given the option to add these to your study programmes when you start with us.
Please do get in touch if you have any questions! Looking forward to meeting you soon.
