Enrolment & Term Dates

FE ENROLMENT 2021/2022

Throughout the pandemic, we have continued to enrol students to Buxton & Leek College and will continue to do so for the 2021/2022 academic year. This year, GCSE results day has been confirmed as Thursday 12th August 2021 and we will be enrolling students from the start of August.

We are continuing to develop the enrolment process to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students, staff, applicants and their families. Where possible, we’ll be asking students to enrol online to reduce the number of people we have on our campuses during enrolment.

We will be contacting everyone who has applied for a course at Buxton & Leek College by email with specific information and dates for their enrolment – please look out for further details on the email address that you provided during your application. This also applies for existing students who are progressing on to a new programme at the college.

The email we send you will provide full details of how to enrol and the information that you will need to enrol online. To enrol online you will need access to the internet and a personal computer, laptop/Macbook, Notebook, iPad/Tablet or a smart phone with video calling facilities.

If you are unable to enrol online, please call 0800 074 0099 and select option 1, ‘Enrolment’ to pre-book a time slot to attend on-site. We are trying to reduce the number of ‘walk-in’ appointments on site, so please call ahead if at all possible.

If you have not yet applied for a course and wish to do so, you can apply online here or if you’re not sure what course you want to do, get in touch via
