Message from your Principal

My name is Marcus Clinton and I’m the Principal of Reaseheath College and University Centre Reaseheath.

It has been a pleasure to see all of our returning students on campus once again and to welcome those starting with us this year.

It has been a challenging period recently but I have been impressed with all our staff and students in the way they have responded. Learning has continued and there have been high levels of engagement and positive feedback. That is one of the hallmarks of Reaseheath, the excellent staff that we have and the desire to give our students the best possible learning experience and the highest levels of support.

In addition to that we have our beautiful campus which is just such a lovely environment within which to study, not to mention the £80 million investment in superb specialist facilities over the last ten years.

However, what is absolutely key is that all our expertise, support and facilities lead to meaningful outcomes. That is why our mission statement is Industry Focused, Career Ready. We believe passionately in ensuring our courses have a clear line of sight to the jobs and careers which are there in the sectors we support. These remain exciting times in our sectors with ever more innovation, technology and new types of jobs appearing all the time. At Reaseheath we know the importance of ensuring students have the transferable skills and employability skills that keep our graduates current and able to adapt as their chosen industries adapt and this is exactly what employers require.

We are proud of the success of our alumni and students graduating from FE and HE and apprenticeships all have a high track record of positive outcomes and onward destinations. Employers hold the college in high regard and know they can rely on our students to be an asset to their businesses.

This coming year will be no different, students will still receive high levels of learning and support. We will ensure work is carried out safely and the blend of activity we are able to carry out will still prepare students for success and development. This will be as near normal as possible and we are hopeful that this will increasingly improve. We recognise access to practical facilities and campus life is important. Students will also be able to retake Maths and English GCSE as they do now and students make good progress with these areas at Reaseheath.

I and all the staff very much look forward to playing our part in helping you achieve success and positive outcomes in your chosen area this year.

Marcus Clinton
Principal & CEO

Results

New students under the age of 19

Your are now able to upload a picture of your statement of results using the button below.

You will need to submit clear images of your results for Maths, English Language and English Literature. Ensure that the whole certificate/document that your are photographing is visible in the images that you are uploading.

  • Please note

    To be able to do this, you must have completed online enrolment via the link we have sent you and have a login to MyReaseheath. See the online enrolment section for more information.

For more information, see our results day frequently asked questions:

Following the announcement from the Department for Education, A level and GCSE learners will now be awarded the Centre Assessment Grades (CAG) that were provided by their school or college rather than the Final Calculated Grades that were subject to the Ofqual devised algorithm.

You can read more about how your official results will be calculated here.

Schools and colleges will receive students’ final GCSE grades on Wednesday 19th August, meaning they will be available to you on results day (Thursday 20th August) as planned.

On GCSE results day you should receive confirmation of your official results from your school/college. Reaseheath College are happy to receive verbal confirmation of your official results in order to progress your enrolment.

Once you receive your statement of results from your school or college you need to upload a picture of them to our MyReaseheath portal using the log in details we sent to you following your online enrolment. You can also find the link to do this here.

Your course manager will call you over the coming days to confirm your results, discuss your place, arrangements for your first day at college and progress your enrolment. Please be aware that calls will show up from an unknown number.
If you haven’t got the grades you were expecting please don’t worry. We’re committed to finding a suitable course for you. Please call our Course Enquiries team on 01270 613242 any time between 8am – 7pm on Thursday 20th August (following results day: weekdays 8.30am-5pm) and they will talk you through your options and can put you in touch with a member of our curriculum team.

Due to the Covid pandemic and resulting grading process there may be circumstances where you feel that your official results are not reflective of your ability and therefore believe you should be offered a place on the originally applied for course.

In this circumstance a College Manager will consider your circumstances, as well as reviewing any additional information such as predicted grades and references, making a decision as to whether the original course offer can be honoured. In these cases learners will begin the course on a probationary period and if it becomes apparent this is not the right course alternative options will be considered with a likely transfer taking place.

If you wish to use mock results or you are intending to resit exams you should inform the college, this information will be considered as part of the enrolment and will follow government guidance.

New students starting in September 2020 – over the age of 19

You don’t need to inform us of any results as we already have them.

Returning Reaseheath students

If you have studied with us before and you have applied to move up a level (e.g. from level 2 to level 3 in the same area) or if you have applied for a different course, we already have your GCSE results from past years so you don’t need to do anything on results day.

All applicants (new and those who have previously studied with us) will receive a call or email from a course manager to discuss their place. Please be aware that calls will show up from an unknown number.

Virtual open event

If you’re considering your next steps for this September, we understand that it’s currently a very difficult time for you and we want to do everything we can to help you choose the right college course.
