September – Applications open You can apply to Adams College online here, or you download the application form from the website, complete it and email it to us at admissions@thomasadmas.net

We recommend that you apply by mid-December as early applications will ensure a place on popular courses. Your application will be acknowledged and we then will ask students to attend a consultation appointment to ensure that good advice has been given about the suitability of their A-level choices in line with their career aims.

 

October – Open Day and Evening This is a great opportunity to talk to subject tutors, students and senior staff about what we have to offer at Adams College. Our Student Ambassadors will be available all day to give tours, answer questions and provide you with an insight into A Level study.

 

November – Taster Day Students are free to sign up for our Taster Day. This is an opportunity to try out five subjects, thus providing another opportunity to ask questions and make informed decisions. Taster Day forms will be available at our Open Evening and other recruitment events.

December – Applications deadline December is the official deadline for applications for the following year, although applications will be considered at any time.

 

January to February – Main interview period Interviews are held at Adams College or at the student’s current school. This informal consultation will help to fine-tune subject choices and to ensure that the programme of study chosen is the right path for the student. A conditional offer is usually made after the interview.

 

June – Applicant Open Day Our popular Applicant Open Day allows students to experience and enjoy a typical day with their new fellow students. Timed to coincide with the end of the GCSE examinations, students will be given A level transition work for the summer. They will also get the chance to meet their subject teachers and the other students in the class.
