Apply for September 2022 Entry

Your 2022 Entry Guide

Over the forthcoming year, we will keep in touch with you in order to help you with your transition to Cardinal Newman College. Here is your 2022 entry guide.

Step 1: Do Your Research


You can pick up a copy of the College prospectus or download it directly from the College website, so start doing your research. You’ll also be able to see us in school, so get those questions ready! Read through your copy and discover the wide range of courses available to you.

Step 2: Come and Visit Us

October 2021 – February 2022

Open Events at the College start in October, so make sure you visit us at one! It’s a great way to find out what Newman has to offer.

Step 3: Apply Online

October 2021 – February 2022

Applications to Cardinal Newman open in October. Simply go to the ‘Apply’ tab, read through the instructions and view our how to apply video. The initial application deadline is February 10th 2022 so make sure yours is in on time! Any application form received after 10th February will be considered for a place.

Step 4: Accept Your Place

After you have applied to the College you will receive a conditional offer email. You need to log into the ‘Newman Portal’ (details of how to do this will be in your offer email) and accept your place at Cardinal Newman!

Step 5: Newman Beginnings

Once you have accepted your place at Cardinal Newman, you will be invited to Newman Beginnings. This platform is designed to bridge the gap between Y11 and starting College in September. You will find lots of useful information as well as resources, tasks and sessions to join in with, so you can get a real feel for what the subjects you will be studying are going to be like. It will also give you the opportunity to ask questions to the subject teachers and have discussions with your soon to be new classmates as well as ensuring you are fully prepared for when you join us in September.

Step 6: Enrol at Newman

If you have accepted your place at Cardinal Newman, you will receive an email during the summer term with your enrolment date and time.  You need to confirm that you can attend this appointment. If you can’t, you must contact the College to arrange an alternative date.

When you enrol at College, you will need to have your GCSE results and uploaded these to the Newman Portal, as these will be checked during a one-to-one interview with a member of College staff. This will also be an opportunity to discuss any worries you may be having or course changes you would like to make.

What if I am disappointed with my GCSE results? Don’t panic! If you haven’t quite received the results you were hoping for, you should still attend your Newman enrolment appointment, where you will be able to speak to one of our friendly tutors about your options.

Step 7: Start at Newman

September 2022

September is here and the time has finally arrived for you to start at Newman! Don’t be nervous – everyone is really friendly and we will try our best to make you feel at home.
