Find my course

Unsure what course to study?

You just need to answer three simple questions about your study preferences, interests and predicted grades and we can suggest courses that might suit you.

  • 1 Study type
  • 2 Your Interests
  • 3 Your Grades
Question 1

How would you prefer to study?

Question 2

What are your interests?

Question 3

What grades have you achieved or are predicted?

These results are a suggestion of courses you may want to explore but are by no means a definitive list and individual entry requirements do apply.

Policies and Procedures

Envi­ron­men­tal & Sus­tain­abil­i­ty Strategy

Exams Appeal Procedure

Please click here to read our Exams Appeals Procedure.

doc­u­ment sets out the process­es for appeal­ing against deci­sions made by the JCQ award­ing bod­ies in rela­tion to GCSE, GCE, Prin­ci­pal Learn­ing and Project qual­i­fi­ca­tions under­tak­en at New Col­lege Stamford.

Poor Weath­er Procedure

In the event of Col­lege clo­sure due to poor weath­er, infor­ma­tion can be accessed in the fol­low­ing ways:

  • Our web­site homepage
  • Rut­land Radio (97.4 and 107.2 FM), BBC Radio Lin­colnshire (94.9FM) and Heart FM (102.7 FM) snow alerts
  • Face­book & Twitter
  • SMS text mes­sages to stu­dents and staff

The Col­lege will also take the fol­low­ing measures:

  • When freez­ing con­di­tions are expect­ed the Estates team will spread salt on out­side walk­ways and steps the pre­ced­ing after­noon in an attempt to pre­vent freez­ing. The weath­er will be reg­u­lar­ly checked with the Met Office.
  • If it does freeze overnight the areas will be checked to see if fur­ther salt­ing is required.
  • In the event of snow falling, clear­ance will be under­tak­en by hand on walk­ways and steps.
  • If very heavy snow falls out­side con­trac­tors will be brought in with spe­cial­ist equip­ment to clear snow.

The Col­lege aims to main­tain safe pas­sage through the Campus’s main exter­nal routes as far as is prac­ti­ca­ble with­in its resources.

It is expect­ed that mem­bers and employ­ees of the Col­lege and vis­i­tors, will take due care for their own safe­ty and that of oth­ers in adverse conditions.

The Col­lege is com­mit­ted to pro­mot­ing pub­lic under­stand­ing of its nature and activ­i­ties via the sys­tem­at­ic pub­li­ca­tion of rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion. It will pro­vide, where prac­ti­cal and per­mis­si­ble, addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion to mem­bers of the pub­lic in cas­es where rou­tine­ly pub­lished infor­ma­tion does not pro­vide them with the infor­ma­tion they require.

Site Rules for Contractors

In line with the Stam­ford Col­lege Health and Safe­ty pol­i­cy, learn­ers should not be allowed in areas where builders are work­ing, so such work­ers should have no con­tact with chil­dren. How­ev­er, where con­trac­tors do come into con­tact with chil­dren, they are required to under­go appro­pri­ate checks. These Con­trac­tors may be issued with fre­quent vis­i­tor badges.

Oth­er con­trac­tors e.g. those who come on site only to car­ry out emer­gency repairs or ser­vice equip­ment, and who would not be expect­ed to be left unsu­per­vised on Col­lege premis­es should be issued with infre­quent vis­i­tor badges.

Con­trac­tors will sign in at Recep­tion who will inform Estates that the con­trac­tor has arrived. Some­one from Estates will escort the con­trac­tor to Estates, where the con­trac­tor will be asked to read the con­trac­tors’ reg­u­la­tions and sign to say that they will com­ply. Depend­ing on whether or not they are DBS (Dis­clo­sure and Bar­ring Ser­vice) checked, the Con­trac­tor will then either be left to get on with their work, or will be escort­ed and super­vised at all times.

A Con­trac­tor is respon­si­ble for ensur­ing that the same pro­ce­dures are fol­lowed by any Sub Contractors.
