Prospective Students



Please do not concern yourself regarding taking up a place at TRC next year.  As a College, we will respond to the Government’s decisions about exams and progression and will post updates on our website.

Arrangements will be made nationally to enable current Y11 students to progress.  We at TRC will implement them, allowing us to continue to serve our community and provide an excellent progression route from schools to universities, apprenticeships and employment, whatever the decisions taken by Government.

Ofqual have now produced a short video to help explain what the process will be in the coming weeks for awarding grades. Please take a moment to watch it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXuDOrtJY1Q&feature=youtu.be

Please look after yourselves and your families and rest assured that you future education will not be compromised.
