How to apply

Students aged 16 plus at application must fill in their own application - Parents will be invited to consent to a student attending but should not fill in a form on behalf of a student.  However if a student is 15 at time of application the parent should fill in the form due to GDPR.

Your email - Please use a gmail account or other similar email address. School emails are not suitable as we have discovered that they do not always receive all of our messages. We also require all STEPS EYF attendees to participate in a longitudinal survey (a short survey for the three years following the programme). School emails will not be suitable for these surveys.

Before you start, please check all programme info: dates; number of days; disciplines available; fees etc. of your chosen programme before making your selection. 

You will be invited to make a first and second choice. If you are unsuccessful in your first choice, you will automatically be considered for your second choice should any places be available after the first round of offers. 

You need to provide contact details (email address/phone number) for both your Guardian and your TY Coordinator before you proceed.
