The College campus is now closed until further notice
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 2020 entry guide.
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.
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. Click here to view all details of these events.
Applications to Cardinal Newman open in October. Simply go to the ‘Apply’ tab, read through the instructions and download our ‘How to Apply’ guide. The initial application deadline is February 10th 2020 so make sure yours is in on time! Any application form received after 10th February will be considered for an interview.
Interviews will take place at College between February and March and are the first chance the College will have to meet you, so it is important to be prompt, enthusiastic and smart.
If you are successful, after your interview 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! You must do this within 5 days of receiving your offer email.
Once you have accepted your place at Cardinal Newman, you will be invited to attend Newman Fest on Tuesday 30th June 2020. It is a chance for you to test-drive the subjects that you have applied for and it will almost be like your first day at Newman. You will meet the teachers, some of your classmates and learn all about the exciting opportunities available to you once you have enrolled.
If you have accepted your place at Cardinal Newman, you will receive a letter during the summer term with your enrolment date and time. GCSE results will be out on Thursday 20th August 2020 and enrolment will take place from 20th – 21st August 2020. 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 bring your GCSE results with you 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. You will then have the opportunity to arrange and order your travel pass.
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 come to Newman for your enrolment appointment, where you will be able to speak to one of our friendly tutors about your options.
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.
