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 2nd August start of August.

We will be contacting everyone who has applied for a full or part-time study programme and offered a place with us at Buxton & Leek College by email with specific information and dates for their enrolment towards the middle of July – 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.

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. 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.
