Admissions Process

1. Attend an open event

Come and see our brand new facilities, meet our friendly team and discover our wide choice of subjects and enrichment. We have had all of our open events this academic year. If you would like to see the college, please contact Admissions to book a tour. Email admissions@s6f.org.uk or ring 01723 380722

Pre-register in advance
You can save time at the open events and pre-register. Simply complete the online form here.

We have three car parks (two on Box Hill and one on Sandybed Lane). We also have permission to use St. Augustine’s car parks and the Church car park opposite us on Stepney Drive (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) for the event. There is also plenty of street parking nearby, however please be considerate of our neighbours.

2. Apply online

We have a preferred deadline of 31st January 2020, however we still accept applications after this date. Don't worry if you're not sure which courses you want to take. You only need to put down which subjects you're thinking about and you can then discuss ideas and make changes at your consultation.


Please note: If you are applying for Hair & Beauty courses you need to apply directly through their websites:

Hair & Beauty courses – The Academy Hair & Beauty website

3. Attend a consultation

All applicants will be invited to a consultation. You will be sent a letter with your appointment as well as instructions for accessing the Student Portal. If your appointment isn't convenient you can amend it within the portal or contact the Admissions Team (admissions@s6f.org.uk)

The consultation takes around 15 minutes in total and is to discuss course choices, entry requirements and address any questions that you may have.

Topics that may be covered during the consultation:

  • Predicted GCSE results and entry requirements
  • Qualifications you wish to study at S6F
  • Employment opportunities and further study that the course/s can lead to
  • Other options you could consider
  • Timetable commitments as a student at Scarborough Sixth Form College

Students should consider:

  • What skills, qualifications, strengths, interests etc. do you have in relation to the needs of the course?
  • What are your reasons for wanting to come to S6F?
  • The amount of work you will have to do, including coursework and exams

Attendance at consultation
The consultation is an important element in the college’s admissions process. If you are unable to attend for any reason, please contact Admissions on admissions@s6f.org.uk

4. S6F Preview - Become an S6F student for the day

S6F Preview gives you the chance to experience college life and sample some subjects. It is a good opportunity to explore the college, meet the staff and make friends. For 2020 entry the Preview Day will be Wednesday 1st July.

This year we had a Virtual Preview - you can access the videos and information at Virtual Preview of College

Not Applied to College?
If you have yet to make a decision about what you will be doing in September you can still attend the taster day. Please contact the Admissions Team at admissions@s6f.org.uk or 01723 380722 and they will organise this for you.

5. Enrolment

All applicants will receive an invitation to enrolment during the 2020 summer holidays. This year enrolment will be on

  • Thursday 20th August
  • Friday 21st August
  • Tuesday 1st September
  • Wednesday 2nd September

Progression Year
Didn’t get the results you expected? Don’t panic!
Whatever your GCSE results, come and speak to us about your options – you can apply for our Progression Year of GCSEs and Applied General qualifications.

Enrolment Attendance
It is essential that all new students are in college for enrolment; please do not book holidays during this crucial period. Late enrolling students will have a more limited course choice and there is clear evidence that new students who do not experience the enrolment process with their peers, find settling into college far more difficult.

If you are unable to attend enrolment, please let Admissions know on 01723 380722.

6. S6F Start

The first day of term will be Monday 7th September.
