We are delighted to receive applications from Year 11 students who are currently at other schools and colleges. Each year approximately a third of our Year 12 cohort are new to the College for their sixth form education and come from many different institutions. Please note that the application process outlined below is different to that for students applying to join us in Year 7.
How do I apply?
To apply please complete the Online Application Form.
On the application form you must complete details of your predicted grades for your GCSEs and the courses you wish to study at the College.
Applications must be received by the deadlines below:
- Returning Landau Forte College Derby students: Friday, 12 November 2021
- New students: Friday, 28 January 2022
Following careful review of the information available on our website, please feel free to contact a member of the sixth form team if you wish to discuss your options or have any further questions.
When will I hear about the outcome of my application?
We will write to advise you we have received your application. We will write to you with the outcome of your application by 14 February 2022. If successful, a conditional offer will be made which states the combination of subjects offered (please note that courses offered are subject to demand).
Students will either receive a conditional offer or a ‘hold’ until GCSE results are known. Return slips, indicating whether the student wishes to accept or decline the conditional place, must be completed and returned to the College by the stated date.
What happens when I receive my results?
The final stage of the application process is GCSE Results Day. All students holding a conditional offer must contact the College to provide their results on this day. The majority of students will be advised straight-away if their place can be confirmed and any queries will be dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. Students must confirm whether or not they wish to take up their place at the College.
All places will be confirmed in writing, stating the subjects on your chosen pathway. The letter will state full details of the Induction programme that will be run on the first 2 days of the academic year for Year 12 students.
Students must bring with them copies of all exam results.
