Entry Requirements

The demand for places at Winstanley College is extremely high. As a college, we must always ensure that we have a fair process for allocating those places. The College expects that the demand for places in September will exceed capacity and therefore we review our entry policy annually to ensure that we can guarantee every student who meets the entry requirements a place with us at Winstanley.

Winstanley College is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming community where all students are enabled to meet their full potential and are respected as individuals. Admission is open to all qualified applicants.
