To apply, follow the admission steps below:

1) Attend an Open Day 
Our Open Days are a chance for you to meet our teaching staff and current students, who can tell you all about the sessions we provide that interest you, as well as answer any questions you or your family may have. It’s a way of exploring our College offering and making sure you feel certain that Homefield is the right place for you. Find out when our next Open Days are.

2) Fill in an Application Form 
On your visit to the College, you will be able to pick up an initial application form. Please fill in this information and send back to our Admissions Team. You can also download the Initial Application Form.

3) Await the College Decision 
Once we receive your application form, our Admissions Team will consider whether we can best support your needs. This may involve a member of our team visiting you at your current school, or you attending an interview at the College.

4) Inform your Local Authority 
When we offer you a place, you will need to inform your Local Authority. The Local Authority then decides with you that Homefield is your main choice for continuing your education, and to fund your place with us.

5) Fill in your Enrolment Pack 
Once your funding has been agreed by the Local Authority, you will be sent an enrolment pack. This contains forms asking for further details in order to make sure we have the most up-to-date information to support you fully. It also contains information about bursaries, and a general information pack to answer any questions you may have.

6) Come to a Transition Day 
You will be invited to attend an optional transition day supported by your current school. These transition days give you the opportunity to join in with sessions, get to know fellow classmates, meet tutors and settle into the College before term starts.

 If you have any queries regarding the application process, please contact our Funding & Admissions team.
