FAQs Can I apply for more than one strand? Applicants can only apply for one strand. Can I change strand? The applicant must start the application process again, sending in a letter stating the new strand choice and enclosing a revised section 7 of the application form (questions relating to strand). What documents will I need when I apply? Key Stage 4 students will need to supply a copy of their Year 8 report, Post 16 students will need a copy of their Year 10 report. At some point during the application process you will be required to supply your passport (to be copied) and a copy of a utility bill which should show the address you were living at the time of application. I was unsuccessful can I apply for another strand? When will I know if I have a place? Applicants whose application is not successful cannot apply for another strand unless they are specifically recommended by The BRIT School in writing and you are not in the process of appealing a decision made on the strand you originally applied for. Why is there a different application closing date for Post 16 Creative Strands? This is to allow time for Portfolios to be developed. We will endeavour to communicate decisions within four weeks by post. No one will be informed by telephone, email or fax. I have already studied Year 12, can I apply? Applicants who have already studied at Year 12 can apply to us but they will have to re-sit Year 12 again. They cannot be 18 years of age at the start of the course. They should submit a Year 11 report alongside their application. What if I miss the Open Evening? We only hold two Open Evenings a year. Key Stage 4 and Post 16 students are welcome to attend either evening but obviously the evening will be aimed at that year group. Due to busy timetables and schedules we are unable to facilitate visits at any other time. What if I cannot make my meeting/audition/worshop? We are only able to try and change interview/ audition dates for Public Exams (not mocks) and for hospital appointments. Please supply any supporting documentation of dates you may be unavailable at the point of application. 30 To find out more visit www.brit.croydon.sch.uk
