Admissions Process

If your child is interested in joining Stoke College, we would love you to come and visit or join one of our virtual events. Dr Lloyd hosts a number of events for parents. They are informal events, where you can ask questions and meet staff and pupils.

Our application form is here. We recommend that you fill it out earlier rather than later. Our places are allocated on a first come, first served basis and we have a waiting list for a few years groups at the moment. Earlier application also means that your child has more opportunities to make friends and get to know teachers before joining.

Every child who applies is invited to join us for a taster day, which will include a short informal interview with Dr Lloyd. There is no exam to take. Our taster days are a great opportunity for your child (and you) to get to know us a bit better. We believe that joining a school is a two way process; you need to interview us as much as we need to interview you! 

If you decide that you’d like to join us, we’ll just need a reference from your child’s current school and details of any exam results. This will help us to work out how we can best support your child’s progress.

We’re really looking forward to meeting you.
