Post 16 Applications procedure

Astrea Sixth Form St Neots  – You can make an application during your destination interview. Visit their website.

Other 6th Forms/Colleges – Please apply directly using the provider’s preferred method, please do speak with a member of Longsands Academy Key Stage 4 staff first to discuss the options available at Astrea Sixth Form St Neots. Please also view this video which should help to explain the post-16 applications procedure.

Apprenticeships – There are a number of ways to find one. You must have an up to date CV. Most colleges have a dedicated apprenticeship team which can help. Register for updates on the government website

All external applications will require an academic reference. You must use the dedicated reference email address – – failure to do so may result in your application being delayed. We advise students not to apply until after the October half term in order to ensure time to attend open days (either in person or online).  Please inform your form tutor once you submit an application so that accurate records can be kept.

If you are unsure as to the level of course to apply for please consult the institution or refer to the attached qualification routes information.

If you have any questions please speak to your form tutor, a member of the Key Stage 4 team or Mrs Martindale.
