Apply to Post 16

External Students

External students can apply via Kent Choices website (students currently in a Kent School only) or by completing an application form (all students) found at the bottom of this page. Students should check the subject blocks on the application form to ensure that the combination of subjects fit before applying.

Please note that you are not tied down to these subjects and are free to change your subject choice later, as long as there is a space, and you meet the entry requirements.

You will be invited to attend a progression interview from January 2023 with a senior member of staff to discuss your planned courses.  We will also discuss your predicted grades at GCSE and your career aspirations.  After this we will send you a conditional offer, subject to your GCSE results.

Once you have received your GCSE results, you will attend enrolment and confirm your final choices in August 2023.

Please send all completed forms to:

Internal Students
