If you are a Year 11 student at Macmillan Academy there is no need to fill out any forms.
Once we have received your application, we will be in touch regarding a 1:1 interview. This will take place either at your school or at the academy.

The interview is fairly informal and we will discuss which courses you are interested in studying and your career aims.

We will ask you to bring your most recent report and predicted GCSE grades, as this will help us to advise on the best courses for you.
If you have been successful, you will receive a letter confirming your conditional offer.
We require all students to study either 3 subjects or the equivalent (some vocational qualification are equal to two subjects).
We do not have any dedicated transport available, however Stagecoach buses run regularly, with a stop directly outside the academy.

We are able to provide assistance to those students most in need of financial help through the 16-19 Bursary Fund. This can be used for such things as help with food costs, transport, books, stationery and equipment.

For 16-19 year old students, a £1,200 per year bursary is available for students in, or previously in care, or for those in receipt of income support. The Discretionary Bursary is available to every student who meets all the criteria. All students in 2021/2022 with a household income up to 21,000 per annum could receive assistance.

The application process is simple, quick and confidential. If we can help you, we will.
Post 16 students are not required to stay on site when not in timetabled lessons.
