Update From John Leggott College

‘’I know that we are in anxious times. I just wanted to let you know about JLC’s approach to this year’s GCSE results and our entry requirements. I hope this gets rid of one of your worries. Our guarantee to you is that we will liaise with your head teacher and if they confirm your potential grade matches our entry requirements we will honour that.

We want to reassure our prospective students that as information comes through, we as a college will adapt to ensure your future is not affected at John Leggott College.

Our School Liaison Team will be working though all applications and will be conducting telephone interviews over the next two weeks throughout the working day. Please note these phone calls will be from a withheld number.

Following on from this, an offer letter or email will be sent to prospective students but we cannot guarantee the timeframe for this.

We appreciate your patience with us, our students are at the heart of what we do and we will be adapting our processes we are implementing in line with government advice.

Applications to John Leggott College are still open and we will continue to process these.

If you have any further queries about your individual circumstances, please email us at admissions@leggott.ac.uk

Leon Riley, Principal John Leggott College’’

Update From Whyke Sixth Form College

Interviewing and advice to applicants

The removal of end of year assessments also has a significant impact on all of our feeder schools.  We have already had several queries from applicants and schools looking for guidance on what it means for their application to study with us in the autumn.

Our position is simple:

·         We will honour all of the offers we have made to students.

·         We will accept the outcomes that they are awarded and use these to assess their suitability for courses according to our published entry criteria (as ever, these are subject to change)

·         We are not giving guaranteed enrolment appointments for applicants who apply after March 31st

Given our move to remote working, applicant interviewing will take place by phone.  The team are planning this at the moment but we will not be looking to start these interviews until we are confident our remote working arrangements are effective.

If you have any further questions, please contact me by return email.

Thanks, John Hamlin, Liaison Manager, Wyke Sixth Form College.
