In year admissions

Freman College administers its own in-year admissions. Application forms can be accessed in the downloads table below or from the college office on 01763 271818. Parents should return the application form direct to Freman College (address on the form).

Once we receive your application we will check it against our admission arrangements, to determine the criteria your application will be considered under. This will determine your position on the continuing interest list. We will inform you of the outcome of your in-year application in writing (via email) within 10-15 working days.

The college may admit students in accordance with HCC’s Fair Access Protocol and if it does so, such students will be admitted ahead of those of the college's continuing interest list.
