Below is a summary of the proposed timeline leading up to you joining us in September.
PLEASE NOTE: Some elements may be updated according to the latest government advice.
Starter guides in each of your chosen subjects are available to you on this section of the website, giving you handy tips to get a headstart ahead of beginning lessons, as well as recommendations of related books, films and TV shows that mean that you can blend learning subject matter and having some entertainment from home. It also gives you a chance to explore other subjects if you are thinking of changing your original choices.
Fast Track Enrolment
Your Enrolment and consent forms have been sent to you in the post in mid July. Included was a pre-paid envelope for you to return these documents, and if you do so before the 14th August, your Enrolment will then be fast tracked at your appointment as we will have been able to process your details. If not returned by the 14th August, you will have to bring these forms with you to your Enrolment appointment.
GCSE Results Day - Thursday 20th August 2020
Enrolment - Expected to start from Monday 24th August
We are all hoping that Enrolment can take place as normal and you can come to the College to finalise your subject choices after discussion and advice from Heads of Department, and you will officially become a Birkenhead Sixth Form College student.

Emailing us your results on GCSE Results Day
On Thursday 20th August after receiving your GCSE results, you need to email us with either a picture or a scan of the results. These should be sent to: email@example.com
Remember to include the whole of the document in the pictures so we can be sure of your indentity.
GCSE Results Day Clinic
If your results are not as you’d hoped and you’d like to seek some advice before your Enrolment appointment, our specialist tutors run a GCSE Results Day Clinic at the College on Thursday 20th August. This does not take the place of your Enrolment appointment, and it’s also not to officially change your subjects, which happens at Enrolment. The clinic serves to offer support and guidance on what the best steps are for you as an individual based on your future goals and GCSE results.
We are extremely aware that you have had a disrupted end to your time at high school and that stepping up to A Levels and BTECs at a new College may feel even more challenging. This is why we have devised a programme to help you settle into College life and use our expertise in sixth form education to give you the best help with the transition.
