Helping You Prepare For College Life


We appreciate that school leavers may be worried about their GCSE results and, to relieve some of this stress, we would like to give you a GUARANTEED PLACE with us for September 2020.

What does this mean for you?

If you have already applied and we have made you an offer, we guarantee you a place on a study programme at New College Swindon. All you need to do is accept the offer you have.

If you have already applied but are waiting for an interview (with one of our tutors via telephone) or an offer of a place following your interview, we will send this through in due course. It may be that we want to talk to you about your choice of programme or that some of the information we need is incomplete. As soon as we have spoken to you, we can send you an offer.

When you receive your calculated grades in August, we will work with you to ensure that you enrol on the right level of course for you. 

If you’re not sure what you want to do, we are running Information, Advice and Guidance sessions to help you choose the right path between Monday and Wednesday every week.  You can talk through what you can do at college and school and also apprenticeships, exploring the best way to get you where you want to be to fulfil your career aims. Contact us at any point to arrange a convenient time for us to talk to you.

We are also planning a Virtual Open Day on 18th May so you can explore options before you commit to subjects, not that this should prevent you from putting in an application. You can change your mind about a subject right up until just after you start the programme. Register for the open day here.

Keeping in touch

If you have applied, we will be sending you updates on emails from us with news and information about preparing for coming to college when your course starts. If you do need to get in touch to discuss any concerns you may have contact us at


We will be keeping in touch with you over the summer and we are looking forward to seeing you when courses start.
