We're looking forward to meeting you!
Check our enrolment FAQs for new students
If you're starting at Paston College this September we'll be writing to you soon to let you know about enrolment. This is when you come into college to let us know about your exam results and so that we can make sure you're on the right course for you. You'll also get your student ID and details of when your course starts.
Watch out for a letter from college - you should be hearing from us during week beginning 8 August. If you don't receive your letter you can contact us on 01603 773008 or email email@example.com
If you are returning to college, most enrolments will be remote: check your enrolment letter carefully to make sure.
What do I have to do between now and my enrolment appointment?
Simple: just one thing! Make 100 per cent sure you can come in at your scheduled date and time of enrolment: it is really important that you come in on the day and time we send you.If you don't your college place could be at risk.
Inform us immediately if you cannot make your appointment (on 01603 773008 or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
What do I bring to enrolment?
You need to bring the enrolment appointment letter we're sending you and any exams results or certificates you have already received, in particular Maths and English. You will also need to bring some form of ID like a birth certificate, driving licence or passport.
If you are applying for a course which requires a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (normally Health and Childcare related courses), we will also need to see documents that have your current address (and that is not older than three months). We'll let you know if this applies to you.

What if I want to change courses?

When do I start the course?
College term starts week commencing 5 September. At enrolment your teacher will let you know the start date of your course and the arrangements for your induction.
What do I need to do when I arrive for enrolment?
